How integral a role will private organizations, like the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, play in fighting the oil spill?

It seems to me like BP should be employing all the local environmental groups, like the Conservancy, to assist them with the efforts. And when I say “employ,” I mean “pay.”

    Private organizations can have strong effects on fighting destructive acts. They often have very passionate members who care very much about their local environment. However, many private organizations are short on funding. They typically depend on private donations (if they have a big donor, they may be okay), often have just volunteers, and must apply for grants (which have been cut back recently because of the economic situation).

    Hopefully private organizations will become involved, but as with many situations, money is the limiting factor.
