Those Who Clean the Animals
The Cosco Busan and Exxon Valdez oil spills are still so vivid in my mind. Now we have the British Petroleum spill in the Gulf. There will be a lot of suffering going on and I just wanted to praise those who volunteer to clean the poor suffering animals that are covered with oil. Have you seen those commercials? I heard that there is a quite lengthy process for volunteers to go through when dealing with oil-affected animals. There is hazardous waste operations training because people really can't just go out there and pick up these animals; there are health risks when dealing with oil. I applaud these individuals for their warm hearts and unselfish concern for wildlife. I admire their sacrifice of time and energy and their compassion for rescuing animals. I commend those who do their part to save wildlife and its living quarters.
