Save Our Oceans….BECOME A WAVE MAKER………. Join Oceana

Oil companies have received federal permission to use seismic air guns to find oil and gas deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean floor from New England to Florida. This dangerous process is repeated every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day for days for weeks at a time.animal boy child cute
The air guns are so loud coastal ecosystems are destroyed and marine mammals, sea turtles and other marine wildlife are injured. Impacts include temporary and permanent hearing loss, disruption of mating and feeding, beach stranding and deaths. Whales and dolphins rely on their hearing to find food, communicate and reproduce. The Nonprofit environmental watchdog Oceana is working to halt the use of these devices and stop the expansion of dangerous offshore drilling that follows the seismic testing. Founded in 2001, Oceana is the largest international group focused solely on ocean conservation.
