Caption: Oil pollution. Oil covering a sandy beach. Oil slicks particularly affect sea birds and creatures living on the shoreline. Although chemical dispersants can reduce the size of the slick, these detergents are also poisonous to wildlife. This slick originated in a spill of about 70,000 tonnes of light crude oil from the oil tanker Sea Empress off the coast of Milford Haven, Wales, in February 1996. Photographed at Freshwater West, Wales.
