While it's nasty business, luckily most intertidal species are adapted to oil spills since they occur naturally with great
regularity. Captain Cook mentioned Santa Monica Bay covered from horizon to horizon with oil. There are plenty of micro-organisms
that will happily eat oil for lunch and dinner. Unfortunately the birds don't do well, but that is an evolutionary issue.
They don't have adaptations to it because their mobility has made their adaptation to the problem one of re-colonization.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not sure the Great Mother Earth can survive humanities transgressions. No matter what, we are going
to pay, but just a small ecology lesson.
Enjoy the wild beauty of nature and the ocean. Protect it and cherish it, seahunt
