The Trump Administration appears about to approve seismic airgun blasting off the Eastern Coast of the United States.
But, you can join with communities along the East Coast of the United States, thousands of businesses and half a million fishing families that oppose the use of seismic airgun blasting by offshore drilling. Read and decide if you can sign and send this protest petition to congress.
Seismic Blasting Can Harm Marine Mammals
“According to the Department of the Interior’s own estimates, seismic airgun blasting off of the United States’ East Coast could disrupt the behavior of millions of marine mammals. These impacts would include disturbances to dolphins, whales and other species that depend on hearing to feed, communicate, mate and thrive.
Proposed seismic airgun blasting would also threaten endangered species, like the North Atlantic right whale, of which there are only about 500 left. If seismic airgun blasting moves forward, it will put these majestic creatures in even greater peril.”
“Additionally, coastal economies could feel the loss of revenue as commercial fish species are impacted by seismic airgun blasts.”
