Meet Ron Britton, with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service. Ron started working on oil spills first as a biologist and then biological oceanographer. He worked on Exxon Valdez oil spill and is now helping with the crisis down in the Gulf of Mexico.
While down in the Gulf, he told Defenders, “You have to finally get to a point that emergency medical response teams have to get to, where you know you’re doing a good thing, amidst all the things around you that don’t seem so appealing or attractive, and you just have to try to do the best job.”
