Fort McRee Recon for Tarmats 3-22-11

3-22-11 Fort McRee Recon for Tarmats

The following are pictures from our trip to Fort McRee on the very east end of Perdido Key. We had some friends in from Germany who are doing a "One Year Later"  project on the Oild Spill and we wanted to show them some Tarmats that BP seems to continue to "overlook".

Melting tarmats

 The Big Nasty
Older Oiled Jetty Foundation that is starting to melt and run down the rock!

We have some extremely knowledgable folks who are helping us with locations...

Runny Oil on our beaches ... just what I was hoping for a year later!

If you can look closely in this's tarmats and tarballs are everywhere.  Email me and I will send you the original photo.  chuckb61at gmaildotcom.

When I look at this Photo I keep getting the Gilligans Island Theme Song running through my head...... three hour tour...

  1. Really well documented, Chuck! I think that citizen monitoring is the most important way to throw light what is not being told the public. The cetacean deaths are an example of how the gov't is trying to suppress information and avoid setting policy.
