Gulf of Mexico Wildlife Needs Help! Where to Donate ~

The immediate concern in this catastrophe are the animals: birds, whales, dolphins, etc. Below are links to websites that are hands on in this horrific crisis and an excerpt from an article on the rescue of the animals:

The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies:

Gulf Coast Wildlife Rescue - http://gcwr.org/how_can_i_help.html

International Bird Rescue Research Center [Has sent a team to Louisiana]:

Pascagoula River Audubon Center:

The Animal Rescue Site:

…The spill has come at an especially bad time for the region's bird life.
"The Mississippi Flyway is a key migratory corridor that runs through the area," said Ziccardi, a professor at the University of California at Davis who wrote the U.S. federal guidelines for rescuing wildlife in oil spills.
"There are certain songbirds and shorebirds that are going through their peak migratory period," he said. "There are other birds for which this is a nesting and egg-laying period."
"With turtles and marine mammals, they're out in the open water, so they are at risk earlier," Ziccardi said." http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6400E520100501

I copied this, with thanks,  from a comment by another member of Huffington Post forums ~ Jan
