TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA TO STOP THE NAVY’S ASSAULT ON WHALES!

 

The U.S. Navy is conducting exercises that could kill nearly 1,000 whales and other marine mammals during the next five years of testing and training with dangerous sonar and explosives. With one stroke of his pen, President Obama can end the Navy’s senseless attack on whales — without compromising military readiness. Urge President Obama to help secure his environmental legacy and save countless marine mammals from needless suffering and death.

President Barack Obama

Subject line:

Protect whales from deadly sonar and explosives

Dear President Obama

 

 

I was sickened to learn that the U.S. Navy’s use of sonar and explosives during routine training and testing continues to needlessly kill whales and dolphins. Just this April, beaked whales mass-stranded and died — for the fourth time — on the beaches of Greece during U.S. Navy joint exercises offshore. Over the next five years, the Navy itself estimates that its exercises along the Atlantic Coast and off Southern California and Hawaii could cause nearly 1,000 deaths and inflict thousands of cases of permanent hearing loss and organ damage.

 

I refuse to accept that this is the best your administration can do. Your Fisheries Service has pledged to do more to protect whales and dolphins from Navy activities. Instead it has authorized the Navy to inflict an unprecedented level of harm on marine mammals.

 

As Commander in Chief, you have the power to end this deadly assault on whales with one stroke of your pen. Please direct the Navy and the Fisheries Service to immediately put vital marine mammal habitats off-limits to sonar and explosives.

 

Don’t let your administration go down in history as the one that turned its back on whales and dolphins.

Please act now to protect them.
