 Melanie Driscoll is Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon's Gulf Coast and Mississippi Flyway regions. When the Deepwater Horizon well blew, Melanie played a pivotal role in Audubon's response to the Gulf disaster. She initiated wildlife survey and rescue efforts. She provided biological interpretation and served as an informed interface between the relief effort and other Audubon staff, the news media, the public, and the larger environmental community.

 And Melanie adds, "As for people, the Deepwater disaster impacted Native Americans, Creole and Cajun folk the most." Her talk will focus on what happened, oil spill prevention and the particular risks facing Native Americans living by the Salish Sea.
