21 August 2010. East Grand Terre Island, south Louisiana.
Digging for oil. Government scientists from NOAA, EPA and BP scour the newly created sand berms where the Gulf of Mexico meets Barataria Bay. The scientists are searching for oil and taking samples back for analysis where the joint findings are analysed. The controversial new 'islands' are part of a grander scheme to boost efforts to save the wetlands. To date the islands have done a good job taking on oil, preventing a great deal of it from entering the Bay beyond.
