The first is the Audubon Society, a long-standing organization dedicated to preserving the wildlife depicted in the works of
nature artist John James Audubon. If there were ever a group of people who know about the birds of Louisiana, it's Audubon!
Another great group is The Nature Conservancy, whose name sort of says it all. Long before the spill they were actively working to protect Louisiana's wetlands from damage and neglect, so you can bet they are hard at work today doing everything they can to minimize the impact of this disaster on the natural habitat in the marshes and bayous!
I'm sure there are many other great organizations out there, but Miss G knows of these personally and knows them to be venerable and trustworthy. Please support them as your heart sees fit! And if anyone knows of any other groups, drop Miss G a line and she will check them out!
