We realize that this is a catastrophic event of a magnitude never before seen. I know many would love to pass judgment and point the finger but we must move beyond that and remember that 11 people have died in this tragedy and this going to forever change many more lives as well as our eco system. That said the sole purpose for this release is to keep a level of awareness on high alert and to help raise money for the organizations involved in helping the animals and cleanup.
Some of the organizations we are considering are:
EarthEcho International http://www.earthecho.org/
Save Our Gulf http://www.saveourgulf.org/
Tri-State Bird Rescue http://www.tristatebird.org/
We will make an announcement on this soon.
