Dolphins Suffering from Oil in the Gulf Need Your Help‏

October 15, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

A once vibrant bottlenose dolphin, called “Y12” by scientists, may have paid a terrible price for the devastating BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Y12 lived close to the site of the spill and one year after the disaster, he was extremely ill with symptoms indicating oil exposure. Sadly, seven months later Y12’s emaciated carcass washed up on the shores of Grand Isle, Louisiana.

Please donate today to help protect dolphins from the deadly aftermath of the oil spill and many more wildlife at risk.

Dolphins exposed to oil suffer terribly. They become anemic, rapidly lose weight and their internal organs become diseased before finally giving out. During the first four months of this year, dolphins in the Gulf were dying at a rate four times the historical average!

Supporters like you have been instrumental in making sure BP pays fines and penalties that reflect the full magnitude of the damage inflicted by the oil disaster.

But now we need to make sure those fines are used to help protect dolphins and other wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico and across the nation.

Please make a generous donation today to help ensure that crucial habitat for dolphins and many more wildlife can be restored.

As it stands now, BP’s fines could be directed to pay for destructive construction projects.

But with your help, we can ensure BP’s fines go towards environmental restoration projects along the shorelines and beaches, in the wetlands and estuaries, and the rivers and streams that feed the Gulf.

Together, we can mobilize thousands of wildlife advocates across the country to speak out on behalf of dolphins and increase public pressure on the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to help ensure wildlife habitat in the Gulf of Mexico is fully restored.

Please make a tax-deductible donation today to help protect dolphins and other wildlife in need.
