The coastal waters of the United States are under attack. Legislation is swirling around Congress to fast‐track seismic airgun surveys and weaken protections for marine mammals. The Administration is proposing an historic increase in offshore oil and gas development. These changes are serious threats to vulnerable species such as marine mammals, marine turtles, seabirds, and ocean-going fishes, and especially endangered species including the North Atlantic right whale. We need you to speak up and tell policymakers that marine wildlife, coastal communities, and sensitive ocean ecosystems shouldn’t be sacrificed in a blind rush towards unfettered oil and gas development.
