Visits to bird recovery facilities, documenting the oil spill's damage to sensitive marshes and bays, and most importantly, fishing trips on the large swaths of unaffected areas are all included. BoatUS set up a Web site, to help boaters stay informed, safeguard their boats, and assist with recovery efforts. The full release.
