For the first time in 30 years the Obama Administration plans to open up the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to the New Jersey border to high-intensity seismic airgun exploration for offshore oil and gas.

This means that ocean wildlife will be subjected to constant dynamite-like blasts about every 10 seconds, 24-hours a day, for weeks and months on end. Even the government admits that the industry’s airguns could injure up to 138,500 marine mammals and disrupt marine mammal feeding, calving, breeding, and other vital activities more than 13.5 million times.

There’s still time to stop it—sign our petition today!
