P 4758 Gulf of Mexico

Parts of the Gulf of Mexico are like a holiday postcard.

The water colour changes from deep blue to green, the birdlife is all around and the marine life is magnificent. No wonder the region is such a popular tourist destination and hot spot for leisure fishing.

But for thousands of people who live here, the water is their lifeline. Their hauls of fish, crab and shrimp are their pay cheque. All of this is now under threat from a huge oil slick.

We spent six hours on a boat in the Gulf, and seeing everything that’s at risk was heartbreaking.
