Dear Secretary Zinke:
I ask you to protect the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific oceans from dangerous new offshore drilling.
After years of hard work, Oceana supporters like me helped remove the Atlantic and Arctic habitats from the previous five-year offshore drilling plan, protected important areas to combat climate change, and stopped seismic airgun blasting from proceeding in the Atlantic.
I urge you to defend our hard work. Offshore drilling leads to oil spills, and regardless of size oil spills do harm to marine life, marine ecosystems and the economies of coastal communities.
I call on you to uphold these landmark decisions for our economy and our environment. Please protect our coasts from dangerous offshore energy development.
