National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Announces Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife

 

Washington, DC — The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has launched the Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife, made possible with proceeds from BP’s share of net revenue from oil recovered from the Deepwater Horizon site. With an initial commitment of $5 million, the fund will support immediate actions to safeguard the populations of species most at risk from the Gulf oil spill, notably shorebirds, waterfowl, marsh birds and sea turtles.

NFWF is working with partners including U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, other federal and state agencies and conservation organizations to implement these urgent wildlife and habitat projects.

The fund will direct resources to the Gulf area immediately. Action is imperative before mid- to late summer, a critical time for both migrating birds and sea turtles.

For millions of shorebirds, waterfowl and marsh birds that will begin migrating to the Gulf in the next few months, oil contamination has grave implications. Scientists agree that expanding habitat and refuge areas beyond the regions impacted by the spill will increase survivorship of birds that migrate through or overwinter in the Gulf. «Read the rest of this article»
