Operation Toxic Gulf

Back in January, 2014, Sea Shepherd's first collaboration with Ocean Alliance, looking at studying the effects of BP's massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Looking at toxicology results of the sperm whales there.
This video features Roger Payne, Paul Watson and Iain Kerr explaining the collaboration and why it's so important for continued spotlight in the Gulf of Mexico.
A collaborative campaign between Ocean Alliance and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, meant to expose long-term environmental degradation in the Gulf of Mexico. The voyage of the research vessel Odyssey, a 93-foot, steel-hulled ketch, equipped with a state-of-the-art, cell-culture laboratory, ran from June through August, collecting data on the environment as well as the marine life in the Gulf of Mexico. With this data, the two organisations expect to have further proof of the extent of the disaster of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
