“Some of the Worst Wildlife Pictures I’ve Ever Seen”

That’s what Dr. Doug Inkley warned me on the phone just a few minutes ago, calling me at 11:30pm on a Thursday night, asking me to log on to my email to see newly-released photos of oiled brown pelicans. When the National Wildlife Federation’s senior scientist sounds shaken, you know the photos are bad.

You can view the photos of oiled brown pelicans at Examiner.com. As is becoming a habit here at Wildlife Promise when it comes to BP oil disaster photos, I have to warn you they’re extremely disturbing. Me, I want to see the worst so I can fight my hardest to make sure this never happens again. But that doesn’t make them any easier to look at.
