Oiled Pelican

Taken on 2007-05-08

Governor Bobby Jindal travelled to Grand Isle to meet with local officials today and surveyed oil impacts on the coast and view current dredging operations in East Grand Terre. Oiled pelicans came onshore. Staff on the tour immediately dispatched the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to rescue the pelicans and take them to be cleaned and treated for any injuries. The brown pelican is Louisiana’s state bird, only recently removed from the endangered species list. Photos courtesy of Governor Jindal’s office.

Syncrude Base Mine in Athabasca, Alberta, 2006

Taken on 2006-04-04

This is a picture of Syncrude's base mine. The yellow structures are the bases of pyramids made of sulphur - it is not economical for Syncrude to sell the sulphur so it stockpiles it instead. Behind that is the tailings pond, held in by what is recognized as the largest dam in the world. The extraction plant is just to the right of this photograph and most of the mine is to the left.
