    This is great. However, in the long term the tragedy will be that survivability analysis will be disabled by the legal process, barriers to allowing scientists into colonies, and BP being worried about their fiscal bottom line. Perhaps you can convince your supporters to put pressure on the agencies and BP to prioritize good science through EFFICIENT and well-informed decision-making. We need to have a better understanding of long term impacts…so that we validate the tremendous efforts you have gone through to save those oiled birds.
