Save Whales from Seismic Blasting in the Atlantic

The Trump administration has proposed permits for dangerous large-scale seismic blasting off the Atlantic coast, from Delaware down to Florida. Seismic airguns are a dangerous and destructive method for oil companies to test for the presence of oil and gas under the ocean. Scientists have determined that using these deafening airguns can injure or even kill whales, dolphins and many other species of wildlife.

        But first, the administration—specifically, the Department of Commerce—is inviting public comments on their proposal. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has created a form to be sent to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. Fill out the form to let him know you reject these permits and to keep our Atlantic coast off-limits to Big Oil.

        The mission of the NRDC is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
