Major Oil Spill Southern California
On October 2nd, a pipeline failure off the coast off Huntington Beach spewed over 144,000 gallons of oil into the Pacific Ocean, creating a 17-mile toxic oil slick. The spill has been extremely harmful to sea life, birds and the ocean as it spread and washes up on local beaches. This area is home to the ecologically sensitive coastal wetlands habitat which is particularly vulnerable to events like this. Although severe damage has already been done, we can still help minimize the effects of this disaster. Please donate to help sharethatlove.org support the cleanup effort.
