It's the Wetlands, stupid!

Reports are that the Congress is likely to consider "The Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act" (S.3711) early this week. At stake is the future of America's WETLAND in coastal Louisiana, where the equivalent of a football field of land vanishes to erosion every 38 minutes. A steady stream of funding is vital to save this region before it is too late and OCS revenue sharing proposed in the bill recognizes both the conditions and the needs of this region, which is vital to the energy and economic security of the nation. This area is of world ecological significance and must be preserved.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TODAY TO ASK YOUR COLLEAGUES, FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS TO CONTACT THEIR CONGRESSMEN AND URGE PASSAGE OF THIS MEASURE.

It is these moments that will define our conservation legacy and our will as a nation to ensure for a sustainable coast.
