Whales and dolphins from Delaware to Florida will soon be injured or killed by sounds 100,000 times louder than a jet engine. President Obama's office just approved the use of seismic airgun testing for offshore oil exploration all along the East Coast. The testing process blasts sound waves powerful enough to detect oil deposits for offshore drilling — and destroy marine life in the process.The government’s own reports estimate that at least 138,500 dolphins and whales — including endangered species like the North Atlantic right whale and blue whale — would be injured or killed if oil and gas companies are allowed to go forward.The Obama administration just granted permits for seismic testing BUT we can prevent this torture if we act quickly. Last year, massive public outcry stopped seismic testing off the California coast. We can do the same for the Atlantic Coast is we act NOW!Protect whales by sending a message to President Obama: stop seismic testing for oil off the Atlantic Coast!
End seismic airgun testing for oil off the Atlantic Coast.
Dear President Obama,
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
