Drills in the Arctic are a disaster waiting to happen
There's no time left to lose. Shell's drill ships are on their way to the Arctic as we speak and we need your help to stop them.
The Arctic is an unforgiving environment with cold water and stormy seas. It's a dangerous place to drill, and if an accident happens, the nearest Coast Guard station will be 1,000 miles away.
Shell claims that they can handle a spill, but the truth is that cleaning up an oil spill in the Arctic would be near-impossible. And while we struggle to contain the oil, seals and other wildlife will suffer.
Oceana is joining with other groups to collect one million signatures against Arctic drilling to send to President Obama. Sign today and tell President Obama to call off Shell's ships and protect the Arctic from dangerous drilling.
