Action Alert: Tell BOEM, NMFS and your Governor to oppose seismic airgun blasting in the Atlantic Ocean
Proposals to conduct underwater blasting are threatening the East coast. The federal government says this practice will kill, harm and harass up to 138,000 marine mammals—without a projection on how many fish. The risk to commercial fisheries will hurt our local coastal economy, and seismic blasting is a step towards oil extraction in the Atlantic.
Our partners at BAPAC (the Business Alliance for Protecting the Atlantic Coast) have made it easy for you to tell BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management) that you oppose seismic airgun blasting. Just click here.
You can also tell your Governor to oppose seismic airgun blasting by clicking here before June 23. Act now to help spare our East coast from this unnecessary risk.
