An important opportunity for the people of the Tampa Bay Area to add our perspective to the Gulf oil situation has just been announced.
U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus will facilitate a Gulf Oil Spill Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 6:00 PM on our beautiful USF-St. Petersburg Campus. The doors to the Fish & Wildlife Institute Auditorium (100 Eighth Avenue, SE; St. Petersburg, 33701-5095) will open at 5:00 PM.
We thought you might like to attend or to help spread the word. Secretary Mabus has been charged by President Obama with the responsibility of long-term environmental planning for the Gulf region. The Secretary’s task is but one component in a broader effort which features a number of initiatives, including continued clean up, restoration, research and understanding what caused the disaster in the first place. Your input is crucial.
Please plan to attend to listen, learn and express your desire that:
- All environmental consequences of the Gulf Oil Disaster are addressed, and
- Everything is done that now can be done, through changes in procedures, regulation and legislation, to ensure this never happens again.
