Ecological implications of the gulf coast oil spill

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - The situation in the Gulf of Mexico is slowly improving, but what remains to be seen is how the environment will be affected by the massive spill.

The oil slick is now roughly the size of the state of Delaware, and the potential damage could devastate ecosystems there for years to come.

Scientists at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography are keeping their eye on what's happening in the gulf.

In this Earth 8 video story, Kimberly King talks to Dr. Lisa Levin about the ecological impact of the massive spill.
