The largest oil spill ever to have occurred in the waters off California, near Santa Barbara in 1969, spilled an estimated 80,000 to 100,000 barrels of crude oil within a 10-day period and killed an estimated 3,500 sea birds, as well as marine animals such as dolphins, elephant seals, and sea lions. It reportedly provided the inspiration for Earth Day. The latest spill is so far estimated at 3,000 barrels.
