We want to give a huge thanks to our thousands of volunteers! In response to the 2010 BP Oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the National Wildlife Federation quickly mobilized volunteers on the ground. With support from members, donors and sponsors, the National Wildlife Federation trained over 250 individuals to conduct on-the-ground wildlife surveys from Texas to Florida—over 2,500 miles. This network of volunteers reported their GPS coordinates and the nature of their observation, often the first to spot signs of oil or wildlife in danger.
Restoring the Gulf, as well as other damaged ecosystems, is a long-term and ongoing process. Volunteers are critical to effecting change and reestablishing healthy and balanced ecosystems. The National Wildlife Federation hosted a series of on-site restoration events in the spring of 2011 and will continue to engage volunteers in hands-on restoration and invasive species removal.
You don’t have to venture to another part of the country to help wildlife. In your own community, you can be an advocate for change and safeguard wildlife by volunteering with the National Wildlife Federation. Here are a few of the opportunities you can participate in:
