Your Call 111307 What is the state of our oceans?

What will be the long-term impact of the recent oil spill in the Bay? On the next Your Call, we’ll take a look at the state of the Pacific Ocean. An estimated 58,000 gallons of heavy bunker oil leaked into the Bay, killing sea birds and prompting the closure of nearly two dozen beaches. The spill prompted a public outcry because the damage is so visible. But what aren’t we seeing in the ocean that we should be concerned about? It’s Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
