Protecting the World's Oceans

Dear Vinnie,

Don't let oil spoil the Chukchi Sea

Tell BOEM to keep oil rigs out of the Chukchi Sea.

Take Action»

Humans don’t do well in cold, stormy waters, but these environments are perfect for beluga whales and other Arctic wildlife. Unfortunately, oil drilling may soon make these waters inhospitable to even these tough creatures.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is considering selling new leases for oil drilling in the Chukchi Sea that could disrupt the migration and feeding of beluga whales. This remote sea is also home to walruses, polar bears, and other iconic marine life.

Act now to tell BOEM to keep Arctic waters safe for whales »

Last year, Shell attempted exploratory drilling in the Arctic Ocean. After a series of mishaps and near disasters, the company dropped plans to drill in 2013. Shell’s experience proves that oil companies simply aren’t ready to drill safely in unpredictable Arctic waters.

If drilling is allowed in the Chukchi Sea, it’s only a matter of time until there is a spill. An oil spill would create a barrier between water and air, where animals like the beluga whale surface to breathe. These whales would become coated in oil and would be forced to breathe in toxic fumes.

Sign by November 15 to submit a public comment to BOEM telling them not to allow oil drilling in the Chukchi Sea »

Speak up now to make your voice be heard and convince BOEM to make the right decision for the Arctic.

Everglades Petition ~~
10 months ago

 

Dear Vinnie, Tell EPA no fracking by the Everglades

Fracking by the Everglades. Are they serious?

Fracking, the dirty and destructive drilling process, has already marred 360,000 acres of land across the country and used up 250 billion gallons of water. [1]

And now, oil companies want to start fracking near Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades -- two of Florida’s most treasured landscapes.

Will you help stop fracking near Big Cypress and the Everglades by adding your name to the petition?

I don’t have to tell you why the Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve are worth protecting. These are the storied swamps where we camp, hike, kayak and bird-watch. They provide habitat for the manatee, American crocodile, and Florida panther.

Fracking has no place here. 

WTH ?
