Never Again: Save Wildlife from Deadly Oil Spills

    1. Petition by

      ENDANGERED SPECIES COALITION

The BP oil spill is now the greatest environmental catastrophe this country has ever faced. We need your help to stop oil spills from killing any more birds, turtles, whales or other wildlife.

On the Gulf Coast, at least twenty national wildlife refuges and forty endangered species will be negatively impacted. Most migratory birds in the Western Hemisphere use these marshes as a stopover site. Endangered species such as the brown pelican, least tern, and the piping plover are breeding and nesting along this vulnerable coast. Sperm whales, manatees, sea turtles, and gulf sturgeon swim in the coastal waters. 

Stronger protections are needed to ensure that we never again have an oil disaster devastate our nation's oceans, beaches and wildlife.

Sign the Petition to Interior Secretary Salazar to save wildlife and their habitat from deadly and dangerous oil spills.
