Oil spills and the effects on birds
The impacts of environmental pollution are often difficult to see. A major oil spill, however, provides dramatic evidence of potential impact to wildlife. All forms of life are affected by such a disaster.
Students in Wildlife Science examined some of the possible consequences of oil spills on birds. Students examined how a feather reacts to water, oil, and cleaning. Students also examined the effect of an oil spill on an egg. In conclusion, students also examined how oil reacts to soap. The lab was an engaging success.
