National Zoo To Aid With Oil Spill Clean Up

The first of four veterinarians from the National Zoo has left for Louisiana to help clean, rehabilitate and release animals affected by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, NBC4 reports.

The veterinarians will rotate in and out of Houma, La., over the next eight weeks to help at an incident command center, where they will be working with the U.S. Coast Guard to help determine where to release the rehabilitated animals.

Here is a Post gallery of photos documenting efforts to help animals affected by the spill.
