Summer Jobs to Defend the Gulf Coast

From the beautiful cypress forests to seagrass beds teaming with fish to the most biodiverse wetlands in the country, the Gulf Coast is a natural treasure. Unfortunately, we lose a football field worth of wetlands every 45 minutes on the Gulf coast, our water quality is threatened by pollution, and our seas overfished. You can help defend the coast!This summer, work with the Gulf Restoration Network in New Orleans to organize public support for the “Defend Our Wetlands, Defend Ourselves” campaign, pressure Congress and oil companies to fix the coast, and recruit members for the Gulf Restoration Network. Louisiana loses a football field worth of wetlands (a.k.a. natural storm protection and important Gulf habitat) every 45 minutes, and we can stop it!Work in New Orleans with potential for travel throughout the Gulf, learn valuable outreach and activism skills, have a real impact on saving the Gulf, and earn $5,000 to $8,500 for the summer.To ApplyPlease send your resume and cover letter to Nick Poggioli, Campus Organizer, at application deadline is April 1, 2010.
