Which Soap Will Save the Animals?

Suncor Energy 

   Magna Cum Laude Award  -  $25.00

 

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2011/mutlm2

Abstract: In the spring of 2010, thousands of ocean animals and birds were affected by the large oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Oil spills have caused many problems for animals and birds around the world. When oil gets stuck on birds’ feathers, it causes damage to their bodies. The thick oil is so heavy that the birds cannot fly. While trying to remove the oil by cleaning themselves, the birds will accidentally eat the oil and poison themselves. Also, birds will sometimes suffocate. To help the birds clean their feathers, gentle soaps may be used to remove the oil from the birds’ feathers. Through my experiment, I hope to find out which gentle cleaner works best to remove oil from birds and animals.
