Benefit for Gulf Coast Oil Spill Relief Saturday September 25, 2010
One hundred million gallons of oil lurking offshore, threatening to destroy our fragile coastal ecosystem and important wildlife habitats--it could be Southern New Jersey—our barrier island beaches, our saltwater marshes, our Delaware Bay estuary, and our ocean fishing grounds. It could be our tourism and fishing industries—the lifeblood of Cape May County.
Our nightmare is reality in the Gulf Coast region, where eight National Wildlife Refuges have already been impacted by toxic oil from the worst environmental disaster in history, and another 36 are threatened. Thousands of shore birds, sea turtles, fish, dolphins and whales have been collected DEAD by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the numbers grow daily. There IS something we can do to help!
