The negative effects of the Gulf oil spill are still being felt around the beaches in different and unforeseen ways.
The recent storms of Debby and Isaac have dredged up oil that is causing a fish shortage, according to a release by the Seabird Sanctuary.
Fishermen are reporting a drop in the amount of fish caught, which is causing the cost of fish to go up.
With the price of fish higher, the Seabird Sanctuary is having a harder time supplying all the fish they need to feed the birds they house.
To try and offset the cost, the Seabird Sanctuary is starting a fundraiser to hopefully raise $100,000 to cover the costs of feeding the birds over the next year.
The fundraiser will go on for the next sixty days.
