Act Now to Save Our Ocean Wildlife
Following the president’s recent executive order setting the stage for oil and gas drilling to resume in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, the Trump administration has released draft authorizations for seismic blasting in the Atlantic. But to proceed, these companies need approval from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and that’s where you come in.
We need you to stand up for ocean wildlife and tell NMFS to deny seismic survey companies’ applications for Incidental Harassment Authorizations (IHAs) under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
Seismic blasting poses a serious threat to ocean life. These blasts register 235 decibels – louder than a rocket launch - and travel for hundreds, if not thousands of miles through the ocean. Scientists tell us that at least 130,000 marine mammals, including the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale, will be injured by these blasts.
Don’t let the Trump administration continue to put the interests of the oil and gas industry above those of the American people, of precious marine wildlife populations and of a healthy and clean ocean environment!
