Drill Baby, Drill! FOI At Work in Photos of Sea Animals Dominate the Blogosphere

Photos of animals struggling in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill remind me that a great tip is to always note a major news event and then make a calendar item of FOIAing — one year after the date — any such photographic evidence. You never know…

Previously unreleased photographs from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico show boxes and bags full of oil-covered and dead endangered sea turtles and a group of sperm whales swimming through an oil sheen.

The photographs were obtained by the environmental group Greenpeace through a Freedom of Information Act request sent to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in July 2010.
