Oil & Birds Don't Mix: How You Can Help

Oil & Birds Don't Mix Campaign

On April 20, 2010, BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, causing one of the worst environmental disasters in American history. 

Audubon's Oil & Birds Don't Mix campaign launched on the two-year anniversary of the blowout. We mark the occasion not with anger but with hope and commitment, to: 

  • Ensure that the Gulf region gets the funds needed to restore damaged habitats;
  • Encourage supporters to think globally and act locally by making simple changes that, added together, can make a difference; and 
  • Make sure lessons learned are not forgotten as we debate new drilling sites in ecologically critical places.

Audubon invites supporters to participate in actions everyday to protect birds, other wildlife, and their habitats. Please click on the links to take action today.
