    Because of the recent oil spills, I think that people have made a commendable effort in the restoring the birds back to a natural, clean environment. There are many organizations that i particularly are amazed by because of their support in helping this cause. The International Bird Rescue Research Center has been helping birds for many years. They have saved many and because of this group, many birds have been given life. After spills, many people don’t seem to see the birds and try to figure out other things that they believe to be more important but birds are extremely.
