Ways To Help Gulf Coast Wildlife

National Wildlife Federation has mobilized staff and volunteers on the ground in the Gulf to respond to the crisis facing wildlife and coastal habitat. Help us continue our work to protect Gulf Coast wildlife, habitat and communities.

I Want To Make A Donation

Donations made to NWF's Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund support our immediate response efforts and our long-term work on-the-ground to protect wildlife.

Thank You and Keep Up the Great Work

The long term impacts of the oil disaster are still to be seen. We hope these stories inspire your family. Keep telling us about all the creative, joyful things your family is doing. Everyone at National Wildlife Federation gets excited when we hear about them. People pass the stories through email and in meetings like little gifts. You should see how it lifts the weight from our shoulders. Thank you!

One More Thing - Try to Play Outside Soon

There's one more thing you can do as family--re-connect with nature. The kids will remember those times and it will lighten their hearts in the future when they face challenges. We must seize the moment, celebrate the outdoor places we love--and never take them for granted.
