Offshore Oil Drilling
BREAKING: the Trump administration just approved permits for seismic testing in the Atlantic– a precursor to oil and gas drilling that could harm thousands of whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals, many of which are already under threat. https://wapo.st/2DU4CmN
The Trump administration just announced it is moving forward with a dangerous plan to allow seismic exploration for oil and gas in our ocean.
Seismic blasting is a violent, destructive precursor to offshore oil drilling. By issuing these permits to Big Oil, the administration will knowingly harm thousands of threatened and endangered marine mammals. This type of damage to our coastal resources is unacceptable. The Surfrider Foundation and our strong coalition of allies will stand up to protect our ocean, waves and beaches for the future. Join us and protect defenseless whales, dolphins, fish and marine life. Read on.
Further, California’s coast launched the $26.5B surf industry, and that is why Surf Industry Manufacturers Association is joining tourism, fishing and other businesses to #ProtectthePacific from new offshore drilling! More here.
