Gulf Coast Media You Want to See

Last week Gulf Coast Waterkeepers released the collaboratively written report "State of the Gulf: A Status Report from Gulf Coast Waterkeepers in the Wake of the BP Oil Disaster". The report tells the story of the Gulf Coast recovery over the past year after our nation's largest environmental disaster. It includes oyster, shrimp, soil, and water samples and talks about the flawed FDA levels of concern for Gulf seafood. If you haven't already read it, please do.
