The oil spill is a very serious problem that is going on right now. The oil spill is affecting basically everything such as the animals in the ocean, the environment, and the people. But mostly, it is affecting the water and the marine animals. The rest of the oil evaporate. When the oil is released into the water, it doesn’t mix with the water. Most of the oil stays on the surface of the water and turns into a thin layer on the surface on the ocean. It turns to a sticky substance that sticks to everything, even the animals and the rocks. It also poisons the animals because the animals inhale the oil. This might cause some of the animals to be extinct. So act now and save the environment and the animals! :D
