    The Exxon Valdez oil spill is the largest oil spill to have occurred in the United States and is widely considered the most environmentally destructive, due to the remote and pristine condition of the damaged area. The oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground on a charted rock, Bligh Reef, in Prince William Sound on Good Friday, Ma INTRODUCTION. During the period – in Prince William Sound (PWS), Alaska, two groups of killer whales (Orcinus orca) experienced unusually high mortality rates, but others did not (Dahlheim and Matkin ; Matkin et al. ).Those affected were AB pod (35 members in ), part of the southern Alaska population of resident (fish-eating) killer whales, and the .

Exxon Valdez oil spill, massive oil spill that occurred on Main Prince William Sound, an inlet in the Gulf of Alaska, Alaska, incident happened after an Exxon Corporation tanker, the Exxon Valdez, ran aground on Bligh Reef during a voyage from Valdez, Alaska, to d efforts to contain the spill and naturally strong winds and waves.

A small portion of the oil from the Exxon Valdez spill still lingers in patches beneath Prince William Sound, Alaska, beaches. However, this and other studies suggests the remaining oil is sequestered, or buried, and currently is not posing a risk to the coastal and marine ecosystem.

The previous greatest calamity took place in at Prince William Sound in Alaska, which measured on the Richter scale. This tsunami seemed to have had the energy released by 25 Hiroshima Bombs of World War II in and caused huge ripples and westward long-distance tsunami waves.
