History of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, Lingering Oil, & Past Advocacy Efforts


The Whole Truth Campaign

In 2007-2008, Prince William Soundkeeper, in partnership with Cordova District  Fishermen United, produced the Whole Truth Campaign to raise public awareness regarding the true facts about the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill -- and most importantly -- the ongoing social, economic and environmental impacts to Prince William Sound, Alaska.

The campaign website, which drew over 130,000 hits in its first week alone, is a fascinating teaching tool for anyone interested in topics ranging from the spill itself, to US history & law, and the environment.  It features taped interviews with community members, historical information, maps, press clips and more.  Click on the above Whole Truth icon at the top of the page to link directly to the archived web site.

Lingering EVOS Oil
in Prince William Sound

Many people outside of Prince William Sound are surprised to learn of the ongoing social, economic and environmental impacts of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill (EVOS).

Bio-available EVOS oil is still present in the substrate and inter-tidal areas in many places within PWS.  Research continues on the long term effects of oil hydrocarbon exposure on ecosystems.

In one way or another, the spill continues to be part of every day life in the Sound.
