The BP Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico is a potent and anguishing reminder of the disastrous consequences of oil development. The toxic oil spill is threatening our oceans, coasts, communities and wildlife. The disaster has already taken human lives and now puts at risk communities along the Gulf Coast, an important fishery, and senstive wetlands which are home to over 400 species. Endangered species such as sperm whales, sea turtles, manatees, pelicans, least tern and gulf sturgeon are all in harms way.
Please ask President Obama to protect our ocean, coasts and wildlife and stop new offshore oil drilling.
