Denmark knows no shame and their children will gow up the same way. This is absolutely appalling and probably loathed by many Danes. When a country follows that path it becomes inevatable to associate the country with this. For example I cannot think of Spain without thinking of bullfighting, Japan without whaling, China without -well the list is too long!

Dear Mr. President,
Dear Secretary,


Since January, over 900 dead dolphins have been found on the beaches of Peru.

Dr. Carlos Yaipen Llanos of ORCA Peru conducted necropsies on 30 of the dolphins, and found evidence that acoustical trauma and the startled rapid race to the surface caused decompression syndrome, commonly known to humans as the bends.


SOURCE: http://www.bluevoice.org/news_perudolphins.php

Loud noise created from seismic testing for oil exploration is believed the cause. The same Mass Mortality Event (MME) of melon-headed whales was seen in Madagascar while seismic testing for oil exlporation was being conducted in the area in 2008.

And now seismic testing in the United States, from Florida to Delaware has been proposed for oil exploration. According to the Obama administration's own estimates, seismic exploration off the east coast of the U.S. would kill and injure up to 138,500 marine mammals.


Recent events in Peru have shown what you already know: seismic testing for oil kill and injure massive numbers of dolphins and other marine mammals.
Say NO ON SEISMIC TESTING.

Sincerely,

http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=NOAA-NMFS-2012-0158-0001

To whom it concerns,

Marine Animal Rescue, a project of Friends of Animals, strongly opposes the Georgia Aquarium’s efforts to import wild-caught beluga whales from Russia.

These animals have been violently taken from freedom, separated from their families.

Captive belugas cannot swim, eat, interact with others or otherwise behave the way a free whale does. No valid scientific research can be accomplished within captivity. Whales in aquaria are swimming in chemically altered water, eating dead fish filled with antibiotics and ulcer medicine, and being forced to interact with humans whether they want to or not. There is no escape, nowhere to hide for animals confined in a concrete tank.

Marine mammals don’t breed successfully in aquaria, which is why the Georgia Aquarium would pay a hefty fee to the Russians to get new stock. If allowed this would set a bad precedent for other enterprises, in the United States, as well as in China, Iran and elsewhere.

Money, through entertainment, is what propels the Georgia Aquarium’s application for this permit.

I urge the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to decline the Georgia Aquarium’s permit to import the belugas into the United States.

Sincerely

Subject: PROTECT endangered whales, do not deafen them with seismic airgun blasts!

Dear Sir,

I was informed about the fact that the Department of the Interior is considering a plan that would allow seismic testing along the Middle and South Atlantic.

Tens of thousands of dolphins and whales will be affected, including critically endangered North Atlantic right whales.


The intense blasts of airgun arrays are some of the loudest underwater sounds humans make, short of explosives. This is exceedingly disruptive for all marine animals that rely on hearing to feed, mate, travel, communicate and many other behaviors necessary for survival.

Airgun noise is loud enough to mask whale calls over literally thousands of miles, destroying their capacity to communicate and breed. It can drive endangered whales to abandon their habitat and cease foraging, again over vast areas of the ocean. Closer interactions with airguns can cause hearing loss, injury and death.
The South Atlantic is the only calving area for one of the most endangered whales in the world, the North Atlantic right whale, and these airguns pose serious threats to their future.

Airguns also displace commercial species of fish as far as thousands of square kilometers away from where they are used. This has reduced catch rates of species such as cod, haddock, and rockfish across areas as large as the state of Rhode Island, leading fishermen in Norway and other parts of the world to seek industry compensation for their losses. This poses a huge threat to commercial and recreational fishing off the mid- and southeast Atlantic that (not including New Jersey) generate $11.8 billion annually and support 222,000 jobs.

Seismic exploration is the first of many dangerous and polluting steps in offshore oil and gas development. For all the threats that offshore drilling imposes on our oceans and coastal economies, there is very little reward. According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, fully developing all of our recoverable offshore oil reserves everywhere would only lower pump prices by 3 cents – and would take twenty years to do so.

I urge you to choose Alternative “C” (the “no-action” alternative) which will keep dangerous oil and gas exploration off our coasts, and instead focus on developing renewable energy.

Sincerely:
