Aquatic Heros

You know what I always wanted to do... because the folks who did it were totally my heroes when I was younger? Be one of those people who rushes to the scene of an oil spill and rescues oil-covered sea creatures. Where do they congregate? How do they know where to go, and when, armed with toothbrushes and Dawn dishsoap, saving loons and seals? Do they have phone chains to get everyone out to the beach ASAP?

Most importantly, do they know that they're awesome? I'd like to know.
