Here's what President Obama didn't see when he visited the Gulf Coast: a dead dolphin rotting in the shore weeds.

"When we found this dolphin it was filled with oil. Oil was just pouring out of it. It was the saddest darn thing to look at," said a BP contract worker who took the Daily News on a surreptitious tour of the wildlife disaster unfolding in Louisiana.

His motive: simple outrage.

"There is a lot of coverup for BP. They specifically informed us that they don't want these pictures of the dead animals. They know the ocean will wipe away most of the evidence. It's important to me that people know the truth about what's going on here," the contractor said.

"The things I've seen: They just aren't right. All the life out here is just full of oil. I'm going to show you what BP never showed the President."

The grasses by the shore were littered with tarred marine life, some dead and others struggling under a thick coating of crude.

"When you see some of the things I've seen, it would make you sick," the contractor said. "No living creature should endure that kind of suffering."

Until the full extent of this terrible tragedy is experienced by all it will continue to be the worst disaster in US history. People have to know the truth, they have to wake up to the reality and become part of the solution rather than enjoying the ignorance of the dreamworld.

Help spread the word, talk to people, send letters and make calls and please dont turn away in hopelessness, that is how they will win.

WALTON COUNTY - Officials from the Federal Environmental Protection Agency were on Walton County’s Beaches this week digging holes and finding oil product as deep as 14 inches under the sand.

According to the operations and response website,, the sand also contained pea-size tar balls that were weathered and have been present for an extended period. Cleanup crews were gone by 1:30 p.m. because of the day's heat.

The Tuesday evening report came from the west-end curve of Scenic Highway 30A.

How sad.

One day I was swimming off the shore of Pensacola Beach Florida and a pod of dolphins swam right past me, they talked and one jumped. They came really close.

Amazing beings...............not just animals or things. BEINGS.

They don't deserve this type of $hit.

Sad, sad, sad on so many levels.........all for $$$$$$$$$
