OIL DRILLING DISASTER IN THE GULF: YOUR HELP NEEDED!
Members of the U.S. Army National Guard install Hesco containers along the beaches of Dauphin Island, Ala., Tuesday May 4, 2010. The containers are designed to absorb oil through a fibrous material which reacts with a non-harmful material that changes the sheen to a more solid state which can be recycled. Alabama Gov.

The tragic oil platform explosion off Louisiana’s Gulf Coast is rapidly becoming an environmental disaster.1
The loss of 11 oil workers may be just the beginning of this tragedy as millions of gallons of oil head for land, putting birds, wildlife and the coastal environment in grave danger.
While every hand is needed and welcome, it's vital that volunteers offer their help through coordinated efforts like this so that the greatest good can be focused where it is needed the most. Please avoid going to affected areas or handling wildlife until you are part of coordinated responses. Even well-intentioned people can inadvertently interfere with important recovery efforts.
Audubon has our people on the ground and is working with state and federal agencies leading the response — we can help find the best volunteer job for you.
