Oil Disaster ReCOVERY
Support the National Parks Disaster Recovery Fund
The oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is affecting and threatening some of our most precious eco-systems, wildlife and landscapes – including our national parks. From Gulf Islands National Seashore to the Everglades, some of our beloved national parks are at risk.
You can help. Give to the “National Parks Disaster Recovery Fund” online or by texting “PARKS” to 90999 on your mobile phone by September 6th. Your money will go DIRECTLY to the parks impacted by the Gulf oil spill.*
Each year our national parks suffer devastating events. From floods to fires, hurricanes to tornadoes, earthquakes to oil spills, our national parks are vulnerable from catastrophes both natural and man-made. By giving to the National Park Foundation’s “National Parks Disaster Recovery Fund” you can now support our parks when they need it most – providing immediate assistance, as well as helping in sustained recovery efforts.
This is your land. Help our national parks of the Gulf region, and all of our parks, in their moments of need.
