I chose to research oil spills because I love animals and I know that they are affected by the oil. The problem that it represents is the struggle to stop oil spills. My picture fits into environment because the ocean and animals are part of the environment. This compelled me because I think it is sad how many animals can die in it.
              This issue is most prevalent in the Gulf of Mexico or in large areas of water. During the spills, hundred's of coral reefs go extinct, near Washington State, there was 11 million gallons of oil spilled, and about 500,000 birds die each year. Some organizations trying to prevent it is Wildlife Rescuers in Mexico, OSRO (Oil Spill Response Organizations) and the SCAA.
               I used colored pencils and markers to create my hexagon. A significant color to represent this is black, because it would stand for the oil, so that is what I used in the middle. The issue is getting better, because there is less oil in the water.
