Oceana Action Alert

Loud seismic airgun testing for oil will hurt 138,500 marine mammals

Seismic airgun testing for oil will injure 138,500 marine mammals, including dolphins and endangered right whales. These loud blasts can permanently deafen or even kill nearby wildlife.

These deadly tests are the first step to offshore drilling in the Atlantic, which will put even more animals at risk from a disastrous oil spill like we witnessed in the Gulf of Mexico. We are currently circulating letters to members of Congress and the Senate urging President Obama to stop this dangerous plan. And with your help, we can add even more voices to the dissent.  Photo: NOAA

Join the sign-on letter today to tell President Obama to halt plans for seismic airgun testing in the Atlantic.
