Volunteers needed for oil spill Bahamas

Wed, Jun 30th 2010, 12:00 AM

If you are concerned about oil from BP’s disastrous oil spill in the Gulf reaching Bahamian shores, you can help by joining The Bahamas Oil Response Committee’s volunteer effort.

In the coming days and weeks the Bahamas Oil Response Committee will be looking for volunteers to continue with on going assessments of Cay Sal, Bimini, and Grand Bahama. If/when the oil comes onshore in The Bahamas, volunteers will be needed to assist with clean up efforts.

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) said recently (click here for story) that we need to engage about a thousand Bahamian volunteers to prepare mostly what would be tar ball removals.

If you are interested in volunteering your time to help The Bahamas in this national crisis, please fill out the volunteer form and send the completed form to sam@reearth.org if you wish to volunteer.

Your completed applications will be forwarded to The Bahamas Oil Response Committee. Thank you for your time and thank you for caring about The Bahamas!
