Exposing the Maritime Waste Oil Epidemic

Between 70-210 million gallons of waste oil are illegally dumped at sea by commercial ships each year. In fish, marine oil pollution is linked to cancers, tumors, reduced growth rates, genetic side effects, and death. It is also toxic to seabirds and marine mammals including whales, sea otters, and dolphins. The new film “Oil in Our Waters” exposes this practice. Film director Micah Fink shares his findings with Earth Focus and explains new ways citizens can now help stop illegal oil dumping.

An Earth Focus special report produced in collaboration with Common Good Productions and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
