Gulf Restoration Network is truly rooted in the communities along the Gulf, and committed to sustaining those communities. They combine this deep commitment with strategic, smartly run campaigns. As both a professional environmental advocate and a native of south Louisiana, I could not be more impressed with and happy about the work that GRN does.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their work to hold BP accountable for the oil rig disaster in the Gulf last summer, and in their work over the last several years advocating for critical funding for wetlands restoration.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't have any suggestions at the moment.

I worked for the Gulf Restoration Network between 2002 and 2006. I had an amazing time working to protect the Gulf's wetlands, rivers, and streams. It was a wonderful experience to be able to engage citizens in efforts to protect the environment. It has also been a pleasure to see the organization evolve over the past seven years. As I continue to receive the GRN's action alerts and newsletters, I am astounded by the network's growth. The GRN's effectiveness continues to improve in leaps and bounds and they are bringing national attention to a regional issue that has such wide-reaching implications. I believe that the GRN will continue to be a leader in preserving one of our nation's greatest natural treasures and I look forward to continuing to play a role in their success.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a variety of victories, including efforts to close the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet and protection of Gulf fisheries from Liquified Natural Gas terminals.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated and effective.
