VIDEO: Bio-Engineered Seagulls to Help Cleanup Gulf Oil Spill...

BP announced their latest efforts in the tragic Gulf Oil Spill cleanup.... 
Working with the MIT CEEPR (Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research) they have developed a flock of 1,000 bio-engineered seagulls to help cleanup the oil damaged water...
Lead researcher Dr. Alvin Hopskin stated that each seagull is capable of consuming up to 75x its own body weight of polluted seawater each day. The oily water passes and filters through the body's digestive system and its waste is expelled as fresh sea water. The water is so clean you can drink it. Think of each bird as a natural water-filter. This new direction will clean up to 50% of the damaged area within the next 3 months. 
Hopskin added that all birds are all bred to be female and sterile. Each one is accounted for with an electronic leg collar via GPS. If this new direction proves to be effective, an additional 1,000 birds will be deployed and considered for other applications.
