You can help to lessen the impact of the tragedy, like this:

Cleaning the coastal area where you live.

If live near there, or are passing through and see some wild animal hurt, affected by oil spills, call:

866-557-1401 (BP animal wildlife recovery)

It will be exhausted, dehydrated, or suffering from hypo or hyperthermia. It will need to be ‘stabilized’ before being cleaned.

If you want to help as a volunteer, call:

866-448-58-16 (BP Community Support):
