Volunteers rally to save wildlife from oil

Oil disaster fears are prompting volunteers and donors in the coastal Florida town of Crawfordville to protect their precious wildlife. They're rebuilding pelican pens, hawk and owl enclosures.

And as CNN's Tom Foreman reports, federal wildlife authorities are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

    99% of all birds that are rescued AFTER being exposed to the oil spill... after veteranary treatment and complete washing... die. See http://greenisimo.com

    Help Louisiana and the Gulf States rid their addiction of Oil wells by urging Democratic public servants to construct more Ethanol plants in Louisiana and other Gulf States where hundreds of thousands of acres of Sugar Cane could be planted on public lands providing more immediately usable fuel than from the current Oil wells in the once beautiful Gulf of Mexico region. Ethanol has not poisoned any beaches, water tables nor slaughtered the fish, mammals and birds in the Ocean. Ethanol plants produced in America has not contributed one penny to Saudi Arabia which ended up funding Taliban extremists killing Americans.
