I didn’t realize what grave danger our environment is in until I learned of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. It was one of the first environmental crises I remember hearing about. I saw a lot of pictures of dead birds and turtles covered in oil. They were heartbreaking, but the media didn’t seem to draw the connection that our environmental mistakes hurt humans, too. I wanted to show they also impact us. -Gina
