Marine scientists are concerned that Saturday’s oil spill in Texas’s Galveston Bay will mean long-term dangers for the area’s wildlife. The spill occurred over the weekend when a ship collided with a barge carrying more than 900,000 gallons of fuel oil in the bay. According to Fox News, officials believe only one of the barge’s tanks were damaged by the accident. However, it is not known how much of the tank’s estimated 158,000 gallons of oil leaked out into the bay.
