MoGo iPhone application available for the Gulf spill

With the largest oil spill in U.S. history looming in the Gulf of Mexico, the wildlife and coastal habitats of the Gulf are under siege.As oil hits the coasts, thousands of birds, dolphins and sea turtles will be stranded along coastal shorelines. Although wildlife rescuenetworks are in place and have started rescue efforts, the task is enormous and trained staff too few. But you can help save wildlife byinstalling the free MoGO app on your iPhone.Please go to http://www.savegulfwildlife.org/ for details and distribute this link to friends and colleagues that live/work along the Gulf Coast who might be interested in using the app.
