This Saturday, May 18th, the Florida Chapters of the Surfrider Foundation will gather across the state to say NO to dirty, dangerous offshore drilling and YES to clean, renewable energy. Making this year’s events even more critical are the newly released DOI plans to expand seismic testing off the East Coast and in waters from Jacksonville to Cocoa Beach. Seismic testing seriously impacts marine animals, and could injure upwards of 130,000 whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals over the next eight years. Additionally, seismic surveys are the first step in expanded offshore oil and gas exploration.
Please show your opposition to seismic surveys and expanded oil and gas exploration by joining Hands Across the Sand this Saturday at noon. Find an event near you by clicking here!
