BENEFITING: National Wildlife Federation
Millions of gallons of oil have oozed into the water since the April 20th rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Some estimates calculate the oil flow to be up to 60,000 barrels of oil a day—that’s 2.5 million gallons of oil a day contaminating our waters and threatening wildlife and sensitive habitats!
And we still don’t know when it will stop.
The wildlife casualties are adding up. Hundreds of birds and sea turtles have already been found dead. Hundreds more animals are struggling to survive, drenched in toxic oil. Sadly, this is just the beginning of what’s in store for wildlife in the region due to this devastating tragedy.
Please donate today to support National Wildlife Federation’s efforts on-the-ground to confront this crisis.
I hope to start with raising $100 to see how Crowdrise works! Thanks for helping!
