Members of the American Bird Conservancy staff recently returned from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill area and issued a report, “Gulf Oil Spill, Field Survey Report and Recommendations, July 19, 2010,” on their findings.
Here is the report: http://www.abcbirds.org/newsandreports/ABC_Gulf_Oil_Spill_Report.pdf
The American Bird Conservancy is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to conserve native wild birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. You can find out more about them at http://www.abcbirds.org/
You should definitely read the report. It’s an eye-opener. /Gary
