On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico. Oil has been leaking from a well pipe ever since. The oil has begun to wash ashore, affecting coastal marine life, ecosystems, communities and economies. We urge everyone in the region, or anyone who is heading that way, to pick up a camera and document this catastrophe so that we can show the world what our dependence on oil really looks like.
