We're staying on the air live until 2 am ET to bring you the developments in the latest effort to cap the Gulf oil spill. Right now, BP is trying to lower a dome on top of the damaged well. Anderson and our team of other reporters have the breaking news from Louisiana tonight. The big question: Will it work?
Anderson and Gary Tuchman got an up close look at the wildlife suffering due to the spill. The images are hard to watch. There are birds and other animals covered in oil. It's a serious problem that won't go away anytime soon, no matter if the oil leak is capped tonight.
A lot of you are wondering what you can do to help the animals. A team of bird rescue specialists from International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) has been deployed along the Gulf Coast. That's one way to get involved.
It's a busy night here in the newsroom and along the Gulf. We're working to bring you all the developments. Stay with us for our special coverage.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
