Make a Difference for the Gulf
- Call your senators and representatives and ask them to support Gulf restoration based upon sound science.
- If you live in one of the Gulf states, contact your local NWF policy specialist above for ways you can weigh in with state and local decision-makers. There are several opportunities for public input each year.
- Be mindful of your local waterway. Roughly 60 percent of the continental United States ultimately drains to the Gulf of Mexico. Preventing pollution begins at home – simple steps like picking up pet waste and using low impact yard care practices can make a big difference if we all work together.
