Three Ways to Show Your Love for the Gulf

from Wildlife Promise

Valentine’s Day is the day you show a little extra love for all the special people in your life. But what about those special places?

The BP oil disaster sent over 200 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, putting hundreds of species of wildlife in harm’s way.

BP appears to be on the verge of settling all federal charges related to the spill. Unless Congress takes action, BP’s penalties could be used for unrelated federal spending, instead of being used to restore the Gulf.

That’s not right. One solution is a bipartisan bill called the RESTORE Act that will dedicate money from BP’s oil spill fines to Gulf restoration.

 

Take Action

 

Here are THREE EASY WAYS to show your love for the Gulf:

ONE: Send an email to your Senators, asking them to dedicate BP’s oil spill fines to restoration.

TWO:  “Like” and “share” the image above on Facebook to make sure that Senate leadership knows that Americans want to see BP’s oil spill fines dedicated to Gulf restoration.

THREE: Post this on Twitter: Show your #LOVE for the #Gulf. Tell @SenatorReid @McConnellPress Pass #RESTOREact NOW! #oilspill http://bit.ly/zyg8vZ via @RestoreDelta
