Gulf Coast Sea Shepherd

The Sea Shepherd crew launch a new campaign to help save marine wildlife from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

On Monday, representatives from the Sea Shepherd Conversation Society announced new plans to help save marine wildlife affected by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The campaign is encouraging organizations across the world to send ships with trained crews to aid in large-scale clean-up and rescue efforts, including helping rescue oil-drenched sea birds, turtles, and other marine life. Currently, the Sea Shepherd's two vessels are away working on other global animal aid projects, but the group is trying to obtain a third ship to send to the Gulf Coast. As of Monday, the US Coast Guard announced that it was preparing for oil to reach the shores of south Florida.
