Our second trip to the Gulf began in mid-June 2010. Again we used our faithful plane "Bessie" to fly over and photo-document the Gulf, this time focusing on areas east of the Mississippi and offshore out to 100 nm. We took the opportunities on this trip to visit with folks from the local bird rescue centers in Fort Jackson, LA (IBRRC). We also join in a "think-tank" meeting in New Orleans for NGOs and other groups to outline practical large-scale actions that could be taken by the public to help with the rescue, protection, and ensuring survival of the Gulf and its wildlife.
