If news of yet another oil spill breaks your heart, like it does mine, here are a few organizations you can support. Unfortunately, they aren’t taking volunteers because oil is so dangerous (which is why we all drive around with it every day). The San Francisco oil spill is larger than the Exxon-Valdez spill in Alaska. It’s shameful that this keeps happening. Along with supporting these organizations, let’s encourage the media to keep this story in the headlines. We can’t keep ignoring the effects of oil on our environment. This spill, along with the spill in Russia demonstrate how harmful oil is to our planet. Not just birds, but people too.
