It's been nearly two years since the nation witnessed one of the largest oil spills in U.S. history. In that time, Congress still has not taken decisive action to restore the Gulf Coast and its billion-dollar natural-resources-based economy.

Ducks Unlimited is inviting media and members of the conservation community from the Washington, D.C., area to a briefing next week to learn about ongoing conservation efforts and Congress's role in them. 

This event will be held on Feb. 28, at 11:30 p.m. in the Cannon HOB, Room 334.

National experts will provide an exclusive update on Gulf Coast waterfowl, fisheries and wetland habitat nearly two years after the spill. They will give a brief assessment of what has happened to duck populations and the Gulf's marshes since the spill and the need for action. Experts on the panel will include Dale Humburg, chief scientist for Ducks Unlimited; Captain Ryan Lambert, professional fishing and hunting guide in the bays and marshes of the Gulf of Mexico; Chris Macaluso, Louisiana Wildlife Federation's coastal outreach coordinator; and Dr. Tom Moorman, director of conservation planning for DU's Southern Region.
