07 July 2010 Photographer Bill Campbell back in the Gulf Posted by: Caitlin Leutwiler | Leave a comment | Share: Back down to Louisiana and Alabama, photographer and Defenders of Wildlife friend Bill Campbell spent his second trip to the Gulf capturing on film the thick crude washed up on the once-pristine beaches of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and in the waters surrounding the brown pelican nesting colony at Queen Bess Island in Barataria Bay. Thanks to Defenders Jamie Clark and Cindy Hoffman, Bill was able view efforts to clean oiled birds at the Fort Jackson rehabilitation facility. He writes of the experience, “It was amazing to see all the people here working so hard and caring so much for these birds, it is just a shame that they have been put in this position by BP Oil.” Read more about Bill’s most recent trip to the Gulf on his photoblog.
