      Hi, I'm looking for photos of the oil spill in the gulf to use in a short film (with the end goal of getting funding for a full length documentary about figuring out how to end our dependency on carbon fuels). Did you take this photo? Would you be willing to let me use it in my film? Do you have others I could use?

      Thanks for your time.

      I am starting up a website: and was wondering if I could use your pelican oil photos.

      From my understanding there is a survival rate of 1% of birds being trt for oil...

      Are you working with the caregivers of animals?

      great shot, not many people do not want to expose this disaster, and you are capturing it for what great documentary photos. some people are oblivious to the damage and effects of this problem......and need to open up their eyes.

      and more's amazing that some people actually do care, and are doing everything humanly possible to help the wildlife effected by this disaster.

      keep doing the great work that you are doing, and tell the animal's caregivers that are all heroes!

      So sad. Thank you for documenting the oil covered birds. We used it on for the article Connecticut Takes Action to Save Oil Covered Birds. An article to help obtain supplies for the Gulf Relief Effort. Thanks!

      BP is committed to paying all legitimate claims for damages resulting:
      Make them Pay:

      BP should pay the millions of unemployed people to go fix this epic mess. I'd be out there in a minute to see and help what is really going on. The oil disaster is going to affect our grandchildren and other future generations, especially the wildlife. The is no excuse for ruining an ocean. If there is anything to work for, this rescue is it. They should go broke in the process of fixing it, because in my heart there is no redemption. God only knows what is really going on, our media can not report the full agenda.
