Bluefin tuna & the oil spill

This graphic shows the 2009 tracked path of a bluefin tuna as it makes it way around the Gulf of Mexico. A fun graphic to put together as I always enjoy doing maps with extra stuff to them that pointing out a location. Originally published May 14, 2010.

The above graphic was for The Times-Picayune April 27 five days after Deepwater Horizon sunk into the Gulf of Mexico and seven days after it caught fire. The graphic I put together sucks, because at this point, source material was scarce. This was pretty much the first graphic of its kind. I was going off of reports alone, almost no visuals at all. Made the job that evening difficult, but the goal was to give readers an idea of what happened. Originally published April 27, 2010.

It shows the percentage of animals collected around or in the Gulf of Mexico (data are totals from in the water, Texas, La., Miss., Ala. and Fla.) that have oil visible on them.
