TAKE ACTION BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
The Surfrider Foundation released the following statement following BOEM’s announcement:
“Seismic airgun testing would cause catastrophic impacts to the marine ecosystem, including potential injury or death to hundreds of thousands of whales and dolphins. It would also set the stage for offshore drilling off the Atlantic coast, a dirty and dangerous practice that threatens the health of our oceans and coastal communities. On behalf of more than 250,000 Surfrider Foundation members and supporters, including over 25 local chapters from Maine to Florida who have vigorously opposed the proposal, we call upon the Obama Administration to cancel plans for seismic testing in the Atlantic ocean.”
