LET THEM SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES…..PART 1 OF 8: A RED ACTION ENTRY

June 2, 2010

Near Breton Sound Island shows birds as they fly over the oil polluted waters courtesy of BP oil spill. This also threatens the Chandeleur Islands and the whole coast line of Louisiana the home of many wildlife refuges and seafood grounds that have been the main source of income for generations of families.

Map shows some of the areas where the sea turtles have been monitored this past year.

In these 8 part posts the photos help to tell the tale of the price that will be paid by the wildlife, the environment, the economy and even the human cost of this oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. As the time has passed we see that this oil spill is only getting worse and no end is in sight. BP has no known workable way to stop their oil leaks from the Deepwater Horizon blowout. Above the map shows the locations where sea turtles monitored via transmitter by the Sea Turtles Caribbean Conservation Survival league. This shows where some of the Leather-back sea turtles live and nest. They are in grave danger now as this is their nesting season too! Wildlife that has been struggling to recover from the hurricanes of the past years….now may not recover from this injury. It will take decades for the environment to over come the shock and will never be the same…..as it may not be able to support the wildlife it once did, those sadly will be gone forever. This will effect not only the local economy but the nations as a whole……many depend on goods and products from the gulf as their main part of their business. The loss of human life must never be forgotten! The family and friends need our support and prayers. We as a nation…..a part of our make up….is what we do when such as this happens….no matter what our differences…..we still come together to care for our “family”……this is who we are and what we do….but make no mistake we will when the time is right demand that those that allowed such a disaster to happen out of greed will be made to answer both financial and legally. And for now I will hold fast and keep a firm though tearful vigilance to mark the spot until our paths cross again…… Lila

PLEASE CALL, E-MAIL OR WRITE YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY STOP THE MADNESS. TELL THEM NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DRILL OFF-SHORE UNLESS THEY CAN PROVE THEY KNOW HOW TO STOP A LEAK AS THEY KNOW FULL WELL IT WILL HAPPEN AND IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT THEN DON’T DRILL IT! THAT IS SHEER MADNESS!!!
