Tell Congress to stop future oil spill disasters

    1. Petition by

      ENDANGERED SPECIES COALITION

Congress is considering a bill to address the Gulf oil spill and prevent the next offshore oil disaster. This is an incredibly important opportunity to demand stronger protections for our communities and environment. This bill is key to protecting endangered species and their habitat, including brown pelicans, sea turtles and whales from dirty and deadly oil drilling.

Please join us in calling on Congress to pass a strong oil spill response bill that protects our communities and wildlife habitat.
