As of October 2015, over five years had passed since the April 20, 2010, Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion, fire, and sinking that led to a three-month release of millions of barrels of oil that contaminated some 1000 miles of coastlines of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Billions of dollars have been committed to current and future efforts to try to restore the Gulf Coast areas and organisms that were affected by the spill. The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) provides an online database and map of Gulf restoration projects related to the 2010 spill. The map and database are available online at http://eli-ocean.org/gulf/restoration-projects/; an overview of Gulf recovery processes and funding sources is available at http://eli-ocean.org/gulf/intro-gulf-recovery/.
