This fifteen-minute video, commissioned by the National Audubon Society, chronicles the organization's volunteer mobilization, and programmatic response to the oil spill.

The video was filmed in September 2010, in the aftermath of the spill, and reminds people of the importance of safeguarding natural habitats and lobbying for the long-term health of the Gulf Coast region.

This video is posted on Audubon's national web site, and has been distributed to more than 200 Audubon as part of a "Gulf Toolkit" - birds.audubon.org/videos/family-stewards-national-audubon-societys-response-gulf-oil-spill

It screened locally with HBO's "Saving Pelican 895" at the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center and other arenas along the coast.

The footage has also been used to publicize National Audubon as a winning charity in Members Project® program, a partnership between American Express and TakePart to help people support charitable organizations -takepart.com/membersproject

Special thanks to: Finley Hewes, Damien Blaylock, Chandler Griffin and Edward Symes for their support of this project.
