    My husband and I watch your show every night to get the true story. Love your passion and persistence on this disaster, AC. Thank you for showing us and telling us how it really is. I hope those of us further away from the coast can find our own way to help out or contribute!

    Tragic, this entire catastrophe. It seems the wildlife is not getting the attention that it should with training required and other prerequisites before an individual can help in this. Also, the limited resources and only a few organizations as compared to many that are willing to assist, has hampered the badly needed assist to the wildlife
    Again, the government and other supposedly animal welfare organizations have their hand in this, are being selective for their own means, in teir control and what gets saved and not get saved.
    it seesm like the authorities, (whoever that may be ) are hiding something about the wildlife since now they don't allow the press to see what is going on. It seems like some of the birds, the seagulls are not receiving any care and are being allowed to die.

    I have been told by friends in Sweden, that their gov't has offered assistance to both BP and the US. In both cases, it was reported that the response was "No Thanks". I think AC360 should investigate if other countries have offered support. If so, WHO and was their offer accepted. If not... WHY?

    Thank you Anderson for your reports on this disaster. I´ve been following it since the beginning and I can tell you that there´s no one trying to find the whole truth about this tragedy, and the mishandlings of everything at the main companies involved, more than you do!
    I hope this oil spill would stop soon and let´s pray it does not reach central american coastlines! It has damaged a great deal already of our fragile environment.

    Sad to say this is only the beginning ... I have a sickening feeling that oil is travelling to places not yet reviled .. Worst case scenarios with appropriate solutions has always been the yard stick in world class industry. "What happened?

    Keep showing us the wildlife, AC. Rent a sub and show us what is going on from the shore out to the rig; we want to see sea life or lack of it; either way, we want to know. We have to know.

    We live 60 miles in from the Gulf. The devastation from this has effected our region both economically and enviromentally. I'm afraid the restaurants in our area may not recover.

    Keep showing what is really going on! How much does one of those vacuum cleaners cost, mabye fundraisers can be started all over the US to purchase those. By the time BP gets to around to cleaning up the entire Gulf is one gigantic sticky tarpit! I doubt they"ll ever get it done. Power to the people in Louisiana and their "cajun engineering ! "
