Boat Company Owners Design Special Boat To Rescue Wildlife In Gulf

Co-owners of Dragonfly Boatworks, a Gulf Coast boating company, have decided to use their business to help Gulf wildlife in the best way they can: with a boat.

The two men have designed a special boat made to rescue and clean birds covered in oil. The boat can travel in shallow waters and is especially equipped with large tables to be used as bird cleaning stations. Now, the boat owners are waiting on the government and BP to approve the method to it can be put to use.
