On March 24, 1989 up to 750,000 barrels of crude oil were spilled off the coast of Alaska when the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef.
It is considered to be one of the most devastating man-made environmental disasters in history. As many as 250,000 sea birds, 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbor seals, 247 Bald Eages and 22 Orcas were killed as well as an unknown number of salmon and herring.
