Summary
When disaster strikes, people aren't the only ones in danger. On April 20, 2010, an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded. Millions of gallons of oil began gushing into the water, causing the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. Thousands of pelicans that lived in the Gulf were now in danger of dying because sticky brown oil covered their feathers. Who would come to their rescue? Look inside to meet the everyday heroes who have found ways to save animals from major oil spills. These brave men and women are able to rescue not only oiled pelicans, but also other seabirds as well as sea otters and sea turtles-- sometimes even risking their own lives as they rush in to help
