Protect Sea Turtles, Whales and Other Wildlife: Stop Dangerous Oil and Gas Drilling Off the Atlantic Coast
President Trump just signed an executive order reversing the Obama administration's ban on dangerous offshore oil and gas drilling in the Arctic and ordering a review of possible new drilling sites off the Atlantic Coast. It’s a backwards-looking plan that could do major damage to the environment.
Offshore drilling operations often use seismic testing to find drilling sites, emitting massive sound blasts that wreak havoc with already-imperiled whales, sea turtles, dolphins, and other marine life. More drilling would also increase the risk of deadly oil spills that can poison the water and hurt its wildlife.
Speak out now for sea turtles, whales, dolphins, and other wildlife. Tell the US Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke that you OPPOSE new oil and gas drilling off our Atlantic Coast.
