As native Gulf Coast gal, I watched in horror one year ago as I saw the BP oil spill spewing into my gorgeous blue waters. The environmentalist in me worried about the birds, sea life and habitats. The foodie in me worried about the fish, oysters and shrimp that I was raised on. The human in me worried about all of the people who make their living off of the waters and what might happen to the beautiful beaches I grew up on.
The BP oil spill has moved many people to seek volunteer positions on the Gulf Coast. But because of the complexities of oil spill cleanup volunteer jobs are limited. But people can still put their service energy to use in other places.
