Of course, there are plenty of other ways for you to help.

Donate: Buy a special edition bottle of Dawn (look for the animal on the label), then head to Dawn's website to enter the code from your bottle. For every code entered, Dawn will donate $1 (with a goal of $500,000) to wildlife groups like the Marine Mammal Center and the International Bird Rescue Research Center. Have something more substantial in mind? Put larger donations to work through any of the groups already mentioned in this article.

Sponsor a volunteer: Do you know any local veterinarians, zoo staffers or wildlife experts who would like to make the trip to help out? Contribute (or create!) a fund to help get them there. You can get invaluable animal handling experience of your own if you volunteer to help pick up the slack at their workplace while they're gone.

Report oiled wildlife and oil damage: If you live along the Gulf Coast and spot oiled wildlife in need of rescue or notice oil damage, report it online or call 1-866-557-1401 for oiled wildlife (messages are checked hourly), 1-800-440-0858 for oil damage, or 1-866-448-5816 for oiled shorelines.

One final update: We previously reported that you could send your pet's fur to be made into hair mats to soak up the oil. Unfortunately, neither BP nor the Coast Guard seem to be using hair mats to ameliorate the oil spill and don't have any plans to begin. We guess it's back to the compost heap for your furry summer excess.

Why isn't BP paying the entire bill?

Because republicans in congress think it's unamerican to "shake down" a corporation like BP.

Yea, I couldn't believe when I read that the Texas Rep apologized to the head of BP when he was getting railed by everyone else

"Why isn't BP paying the entire bill?"

Especially when BP just dropped 50 million on a marketing campaign to save face through this ordeal.
