Although the Atlantic was recently removed from consideration for oil and gas leasing, multiple permits that would allow for seismic testing to occur over a huge swath of the Eastern Seaboard continue to move forward. Seismic testing is a means to one end, offshore oil and gas development, and has been widely opposed by communities, businesses, and local governments up and down the East Coast.
Please ask that the Obama Administration take immediate action to eliminate the imminent threat seismic testing poses to marine mammals, fisheries, and other wildlife in the Atlantic.
