The oil spill off the mouth of the Mississippi River has been declared a “spill of national significance,” and threatens damage to the Gulf Coast—perhaps for months and even years to come. With the first wave of the oil slick expected to impact coastal Louisiana as early as Thursday evening, Governor Bobby Jindal has declared a state of emergency.
The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is joining with their partners at the local, state and federal level to begin registering volunteers to assist with spill recovery efforts.
You can mail donations and sign up as a volunteer below:

How to Help:
Quote from the CCLR: "We do not know the location or the extent of impact to birds, wildlife, and habitat at this time. What we do know is that we need to be ready with on-call volunteers in the event that they are needed. National Wildlife Federation, National Audubon Society, the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana are building a list of volunteers prepared to help with this response.
Louisiana is experiencing another catastrophe and we are happy to accept donations of equipment or funds to assist in recovery efforts. Our organization has worked on coastal issues in Louisiana for over 20 years and we have partnered with several other local and national organizations working on this effort.
Donations of equipment or funds will be utilized by our partner organizations toward common needs associated with mobilization of volunteers, equipment, food and lodging, transportation and disposal of hazardous material. We do not know the location or the extent of impact to birds, wildlife, and habitat at this time."blog comments powered by Disqus
