Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: how much wildlife was lost

This may not have to do with animal cruelty but I felt like I really needed to tell everyone...
I was reading about The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (that happened in 1989). I thought it was interesting so I read on. Then I saw what was estimated for the loss of wildlife...

Sea birds: 250,000
Sea otters: 2,800
Harbor seals: 300
Bald eagles: 250
Killer whales: 22
Salmon and herring eggs: trillions

I just can't beleive that, can you?
