Protect Dolphins from Oil in Belize

UPDATE July 25: We've got over 26,000 signatures! Will you help push us over the 30,000 mark?

Right now, oil companies are preparing to drill in the middle of the Belize Barrier Reef – home to thousands of dolphins, green sea turtles and whale sharks.

Thousands of people in Belize have already signed on to put a national referendum outlawing offshore drilling on the ballot, but to stop this drilling once and for all we also need your help.  

The deadline for the referendum is fast approaching and we want every registered Belizean to have the opportunity to sign this historic petition against offshore oil drilling. If you help us show Belize that the world is watching this debate -- and stands with those in Belize who oppose dangerous drilling -- it could have a big impact.

The Belize Barrier Reef System is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to innumerable species and an irreplaceable natural resource. Your support today will help preserve this natural wonder for Belize, and for visitors from around the world.

Tell the government of Belize that you want to see dolphins, not oil drills, in the Belize Barrier Reef.  Help us get to 10,000 signatures!

Thank you for your support, however this action has expired
