In recent weeks I have been pretty upset about the Gulf oil spill and the damage to wildlife in the area, I found these links for organizations that are rescuing birds and other animals. They will take monetary donations or donations of Dawn dish detergent (what they use to clean off animals that get caught in the slicks, yes Dawn really does get grease out of your way!).
Even a little bit helps, the more people who get involved the more we can do to save our fellow creatures from this mess.
Wildlife Rescue Teams are in the Gulf now mobilizing to save as much wildlife as they can.
