As many of you know, the President has recently opened the possibility of more oil drilling on the East Coast. As part of that drilling, seismic blast tests are being allowed off the coast of Florida.

These blasts are deafening to numerous marine creatures, including whales and dolphins that use sound as a means of navigation.

One of these areas is off the coast of Florida and is the only location in the world where the North Atlantic Right Whale gives birth and nurses its children. When deafened, marine life often ends up beached and dying.

Click the link above to sign a petition telling this administration of your opposition to these blasts.
