Filming the spill

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 2010 at 2:32 PM

Six students from Mountain Pine High School recently returned from a trip to the Gulf Coast to film the effects of the BP oil spill. The students are participants in the school's EAST program (Environmental and Spatial Technology). The group, accompanied by Audubon Arkansas' education director Mary Smith, filmed wildlife clean-up efforts in the region and talked to the people of the Gulf Coast to see how the spill has affected their lives. The students, who have done projects with Audubon before, including a film about the Purple Martin, hope to edit a documentary out of 12 hours of raw footage.
