Response to Recent Stories in The "Huffington Post"

In a few recent national blogs there has been erroneous information about the purpose and origins of the America’s WETLAND Foundation. In an attempt to clear up these inaccuracies, we provide the following factual information. 

-     The America’s WETLAND Foundation had NO ROLE in the production of the Sandra Bullock PSAs. They were produced solely by the Women of the Storm (www.womenofthestorm.net).

-     The America’s WETLAND Foundation HAS NEVER advocated that taxpayers foot the bill for BP’s damage to the wetlands.

- AT NO TIME has any oil company representative sat on the America’s WETLAND Foundation board or had a role in directing our activities. 

We urge you to learn the facts.  Please click here to download a point-by-point rebuttal of the allegations compared to the facts.  Click here to download “Who We Are”.   

The America's WETLAND Foundation manages the largest, most comprehensive public education campaign in Louisiana's history, raising public awareness of the impact of Louisiana's wetland loss on the state, nation and world. The America's Energy Coast initiative works to sustain the environmental and economic assets of the Gulf Coast region. The initiative is supported by a growing coalition of world, national and state conservation and environmental organizations and has drawn private support from businesses that see wetlands protection as a key to economic growth.
