The snowy plover is one of the most at-risk species from the BP oil spill. In addition to coming in direct contact to the oil, the snowy plover is at-risk of being poisoned by eating smaller invertebrates that have been tainted with oil.
Rather than assuming full responsibility for the costs of their recklessness on wildlife like the snowy plover, the price tag could be pushed off on you, the American taxpayer.
Currently, outdated legislation puts BP off the hook for damages above $75 million, even though this is less than one day's profit for BP!
Edit and send the message below, urging Congress to hold Big Oil polluters accountable to paying the full cost of their negligence.
