Urge Congress to Act on Gulf Oil Spill
- Target: U.S. Congress
- Sponsored by: National Audubon Society
Congress has an opportunity and responsibility to respond to the damage done to birds, wildlife and habitat in the Gulf region.
Please contact your two Senators and House member and ask them to make sure that BP’s oil spill penalties — potentially billions of dollars — go to Gulf recovery and restoration. These funds will be diverted to other purposes unless Congress acts.
Please customize your message with a comment letting your delegation know why directing penalty money to restoration is important to you. If you have time to add something as simple as “As a lifelong resident of [your town & state] / As a new constituent who cares deeply about our environment / As a family that treasures America’s wildlife…” to your letter, it will help your letter stand out to your members of Congress.Source & Petition : ACTION ALERT: Urge Congress to Act on Gulf Oil Spill!
