Experts fear that the spill will result in an environmental disaster. It threatens the fragile Gulf coastline and wetlands vital to the region's economy, the seafood industry, thousands of species of wildlife, and the region that forms the first line of defense to storms and hurricanes. There have been a variety of ongoing efforts to stem the flow of oil at the wellhead. Crews have been working to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands and estuaries along the northern Gulf coast, using skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, and sand-filled barricades along shorelines.
The Charities listed on www.crowdrise.com/oilspill are doing incredibly hard work on our behalf. Please donate what you can and get at least 5 friends to donate too. And while the donations are important, the support you show and the awareness you help spread are just as valuable.
