Yet another oil spill has been discovered in the state of Michigan, this time affecting the Great Lakes.

On Tuesday, October 5, state and federal officials received complaints from concerned members of the public that parts of a Lake Huron had toxic oil coating the shoreline of the Cheboygan State Park and sheen within the waters of Duncan Bay. This Northern Michigan coastline is home to several threaten wildlife and plant species, some of which include the rare Black Tern, Pitcher’s thistle, and Dwarf Lake Iris.
