The Issue:Oil special interests in Congress are trying to gut the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), an important ocean conservation law that seeks to restore and maintain healthy populations of all marine mammals in U.S. waters.
The changes proposed in a bill pushed by pro-drilling members of Congress could devastate populations of manatees, whales, dolphins, seals, and other marine mammals, risk ocean health, and reverse years of ocean conservation. We must speak up for manatees and other marine mammals now — this is a fight we must win.
What You Can Do:Please add your information below to send a message to your U.S. senators and representatives, asking them to defend manatees, whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals by rejecting legislation that would weaken the MMPA.
Please reject legislation that would weaken the MMPA.
