How many lives has this spill really taken?

Nasa is publishing pictures of the oilspill. It is huge. This country will investigate how this happened. We mourn the dead workers and grieve with their families. But, do we really consider the animals who found their death in this tragedy? We humans are a speciest species. When we hear of lifes lost we think of the big prefrontal cortex kind of life. I grieve also for those who couldn’t have seen this coming. They also breathe, reproduce and may or may not have emotions. What harms the least of these also harms us.
