Badly oiled marshes could spell even more trouble for the Gulf Coast’s already hurting wetlands.

Less than a month ago there was a fair amount of oil left in the Gulf of Mexico. How do I know? I saw it.

The last week of July, several colleagues and I went on a fact-finding mission to the Gulf of Mexico, to see first-hand what oil and resulting damage could be seen. We gathered video of our travels.

In the video featured here, my colleague Curt Richardson, head of the Duke University Wetland Center, shows us some of the worst soiled areas.
