There’s a recent blog post from a Greenpeace worker who’s documenting the impact of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He describes the tens of thousands of dead hermit crabs on the beaches of Grand Isle, LA.
The problem is that it’s all connected. Hermit crabs may not be quite as cute as sea turtles or as strikingly beautiful as roseate spoonbills, but they are a bellwether for the health of the Gulf of Mexico.
Read the post and don’t forget we’re all connected.
