Between 70 to 210 million gallons of waste oil are dumped at sea by commercial ships each year. In fish, marine pollution is linked to cancer, reduced growth rates, genetic side effects, and death. It's also toxic to seabirds and marine mammals, including whales, sea otters, and dolphins.

The new film "Oil in Our Waters" exposes this practice. Director Micah Fink shares his findings with "Earth Focus" and explains new ways citizens can help stop illegal oil dumping.

This report was produced in collaboration with Common Good Productions and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
