With more than 400 fish and wildlife species relying on the Gulf Coast for food, cover, and breeding areas, the BP Oil Spill threatens the survival of marine and terrestrial species not only now, but in the long term as well.

Similar to the Exxon Valdez oil spill, populations of fish, shellfish, marine mammals, birds and other wildlife that depend on coastal habitat may not recover, even decades later.

Use Social Media to Spread the Word About the Oil Spill……

We are looking for dedicated online wildlife advocates to help spread messages about the oil spill’s impacts to wildlife, and also share what people can do to help.

Wildlife and wild places are facing the worst ecological disaster in U.S. history.

More than 400 species of birds, fish and other wildlife are threatened by the massive oil spill of April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.

While government and industry leaders are working hard to stop, contain and remove the oil, National Wildlife Federation is providing the assistance needed to protect the animals and habitat they depend on for the future.

Your gift to National Wildlife Federation’s Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund will help National Wildlife Federation and our volunteer networks immediate response to protect and ongoing effort to restore vulnerable nesting and breeding grounds as well as other delicate ecosystems found throughout the Gulf Coast for water birds, sea turtles, and other animals.

Please donate today when wildlife needs you most.
