GulfWatch: One Year Later

GulfWatch: One Year Later

Florida Matters examines the ongoing impact the spill has on our community and along the Gulf Coast, and what progress has been made in the restoration efforts.
During the program, Florida’s leading scientists discuss their continuing role in measuring the effects of the oil spill. We compare how two governors responded to the spill – both Gov. Crist, who was on the ground during the event, and now Gov. Scott.
GulfWatch: One Year Later is a WUSF Production in partnership with WEDU and Bright House Networks.
