Expedition Photo of the Day: Oil on the Horizon

© Oceana/Eduardo Sorensen

My other photos of the day have been cool underwater creatures. But today, my focus is something you can see above the waves. This beautiful photo is marred by that pesky oil rig in the distance, otherwise breaking up a fantastic sunset.

It is no surprise that as an ocean conservation group, we are against offshore drilling. Our expedition will continue for several more weeks, looking for how the BP drilling diaster has affected the area. But we are also working to make sure that an event like this never happens again.

Sign the petition to ban offshore drilling.

Be sure to check out all our footage from the expedition – photos, videos, blogs - updated every day!
