When our two loves collide, it can be a recipe for disaster, as we recently saw off of the coast of Santa Barbara County.
According to Time, “21,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into the Pacific Ocean off the Santa Barbara County coast on Tuesday after an underground pipeline ruptured. The oil slick spread to at least nine miles long by Wednesday afternoon.”
Rather than pointing fingers, we are all about looking towards the future and getting our animal friends and beaches back in tip top shape.
Here are ways you can help with the oil cleanup efforts:
If you live in the area, see if you are able to volunteer.
Just drove by the Refugio oil spill. What a disaster. I am shocked at how few boats are working on the clean up. This is just north of El Capitan which is one of the best surf spots around. If you would like to help contact http://californiavolunteer.org/ If you are in the area and see any birds or marine mammals contact Wildlife Network at 877 823-6926 #refugio #oilspill #pleasevolunteer #boats #cleanup #disaster #elcapitan #surf #beach
Find animal organizations, such as Friends of the Sea Otters, to see if there is anything you can do to help out with the recovery.
As we started this post, we love our beach and animals but we also love our cars. We know we can find a balance.
