Two beaches most affected by Santa Barbara oil spill remain closed, others still open

Posted: Updated:
The two beaches most effected by the spill, Refugio and El Capitan, will be closed until at least June 18. 

Crews are testing soil samples from both beaches and many rocks are still covered with oil.

So far wildlife rescue teams have saved 39 oiled birds and 22 oiled mammals.

But they've also found 18 birds and 10 mammals dead.

Goleta, Isla Vista, Arroyo Burro, and Santa Barbara beaches remain open, although some section may be temporarily marked off.
