Yesterday a cargo ship hit the Bay Bridge. The bridge is (mostly) okay, but the ship is not. It's leaked 58,000 gallons of oil into the Bay waters. Yuck! Beaches are closed, wildlife is dying.
The Save The Bay organization has put together a great page of information about the spill. It includes resources if you want to volunteer, donate money, document spills, or just learn more about what is going on.
E and I are going to find out if we can help out this weekend. There's never been a better time to act locally folks!
