THE STORY:

We need to help the victims of the oilspill without a voice...our economy can recover but the loss of wildlife and certain species may be forever! The National Wildlife Federation has set up a specific fund to help the victims of the oil spill. The money that we raise will be donated to help them to continue to monitor the coasts for wildlife victims impacted by the spill as well as to create long-term restoration plans. They're are also working 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.
In addition they are creating public education campaigns about the spill and it's devasting impacts on wildlife, this includes their online efforts at www.nwf.org/oilspill and informing the press and others about the impacts that the spill is having on coastal communities and wildlife. The NWF and thousands of others are taking action at this moment and so should we!

Gulf Oil Spill Stats:
60,000 barrells of oil are spilling into the Gulf each day, we consume 19.5 million barrells of oil per day in the U.S. alone
400 species of wildlife are threatened by the spill. Threatened species include sea turtles. whales, tuna and shrimp; dozens of species of birds; land animals such as the gray fox and white-tailed deer; and amphibians such as the alligator and the snapping turtle.

At least 30: Species of birds the Audubon Society says are potentially threatened by the oil spill. These include marsh birds, ocean-dwelling birds and migratory songbirds. All reside in "Important Bird Areas," according to Audubon, designated because of their "essential habitat value." Among the most vulnerable species is the brown pelican -- the state bird of Louisiana -- which was only recently removed from the endangered species list. The spill is especially devastating for bird populations because it coincides with the beginning of breeding season. (Source: Audubon Society)
