The estimated initial death toll of the Exxon Valdez oil spill included 250,000 seabirds, 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbor seals, 250 bald eagles, up to 22 killer whales, billions of salmon and herring eggs, and other intertidal plants and animals. Some injured species are still recovering. (Photo from the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council web site.)
