Oil spill clean up effort as oil spill reaches outside the Golden Gate Bridge north to the coastline of Rodeo Beach, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Marin County, San Francisco Bay Area, California.
Employees of NRC Environmental Services clean up oil (a hazardous material) from the rocks n the rain. It is a tedious and slow job as they try to absorb the oil onto blotter material. Source of oil now north moving up the California coast was a 58,0000 gallon bunker oil spill on Nov. 07, 2007 resulting from Hanjin Shipping's 65,131-ton Cosco Busan container ship collision with Oakland-Bay Bridge, San Francisco Bay, California. The largest oil spill in San Francisco Bay in more than a decade. Rodeo Beach and Lagoon are a major bird and wildlife habitat area. The endangered tidewater goby currently lives in Rodeo Lagoon and Bird Island off of Rodeo Lagoon is one of the largest roosting sites in northern California for the endangered brown pelican. Photo taken on November 10, 2007 at Rodeo Beach, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Marin County, San Francisco Bay Area, California where clean up efforts are taking place to remove the oil.
