|It’s been five years since the BP oil spill disaster first devastated wetlands, beaches, and wildlife habitats in the Gulf; and the impacts are still far from over.
A recent study found that the highest number of bottlenose dolphin strandings between 2010 and early 2013 took place in areas most impacted by the 2010 BP oil spill.
Earlier this year, a Louisiana federal judge ruled that BP face a potential fine of $13.7 billion for the devastation caused by their oil disaster in the Gulf. However, there is no guarantee those fines will go toward the restoration of habitats for species like the bottlenose dolphin.
It’s up to people like you to make sure the BP’s fines from the Gulf oil disaster go toward real environmental and community restoration, not corporate development in fragile areas.
Send a message telling the Department of Commerce to make sure BP’s Gulf oil disaster fines are used for restoring Gulf wildlife, ecosystems and communities!
