I am proud to announce The Nature Conservancy's new partnership with Oxfam America in the Gulf of Mexico. We aim to show that environmental restoration is the foundation for lasting economic security for Gulf Coast communities.
The BP disaster turns two this week. Two years since the nation was reminded that offshore drilling is dirty, dangerous, and deadly. As we look back and assess where we are today, a troubling picture is emerging from the Gulf.
