Newfoundland oil spill: biologists fear scale of devastation may never be known

Biologists are attempting to assess damage to vulnerable wildlife caused by Newfoundland’s largest-ever oil spill, amid fears that the full scale of devastation may never be known.

“This is perhaps the worst time of year for an oil spill to occur with respect to seabirds,” said Gail Fraser, a biologist who specializes in maritime seabirds. The SeaRose remains shut down as Canadian regulators begin to investigate the incident.
