As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Audubon CEO Comments On BP Settlement


National Audubon Society President and CEO David Yarnold released the following statement upon news today that BP has settled criminal charges arising from the 2010 gulf oil disaster with the Department of Justice for $4.5 billion.

“This settlement matches the unprecedented offense BP committed,” said Audubon President and CEO David Yarnold. “But they still have to make amends for the environmental damage their crimes caused. And the Department of Justice drove a fair settlement, but BP needs to compensate the Gulf Coast in the form of civil damages. The rule has to be: You break it, you buy it.”
