“Viewers get a glimpse of how we work – and who we work with”
TAMPA, Fla. (April 20, 2022) – On the 12th anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the National Wildlife Federation is showcasing its broader efforts across the Gulf Coast in a new video.
“We have worked on the Deepwater Horizon disaster since the first days of the spill, but the full scope of our efforts has always been much wider. We work regionwide to ensure that coastal communities and habitats are restored, protected and will remain resilient in the face of climate change,” said Amanda Moore, director of the National Wildlife Federation’s Gulf program.
The video, created by G. Steve Jordan Productions, takes an unusual approach: Instead of interviewing staff, the video features interviews with community leaders who have worked with the National Wildlife Federation over the years.
“Viewers get a glimpse of how we work – and who we work with,” said Moore. “We are so glad we used Steve’s ‘outside in’ approach. We are really pleased that the final product is itself an example of our focus on collaboration,” said Moore.
The National Wildlife Federation’s Gulf Program strives to engage diverse communities in our efforts to protect wildlife habitat and increase climate resilience from the Texas coast to the Mississippi River Delta to Florida's Everglades as well as in the deeper waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
