Now that it's too late, Tampa newpaper publishes article about wildlife rescue groups not allowed to participate in spill response.

Experienced groups who could have rescued the thousands of birds, adults and nestlings, left to suffer and die on the many islands due to a policy of not 'disturbing the nesting grounds.'  While the contractor hired by BP advertised for and hired people with little experience.

And I was writing to many media organizations asking them to look into both those issues: the organizations not allowed to participate and the policy of leaving the birds to suffer and die on the islands.
