We wish to convey our gratitude to you, the California Coastal Commission for your courageous actions. Your willingness to be the voice of the cetaceans, magnificent beings we share this planet with is a breath of fresh air in a world of compromise and half truth. On behalf of all people who care about and understand the importance of our oceans and their inhabitants, we say Thank You!!!


Petition Background

The U.S. Navy has sought permission to kill, permanently injure, or otherwise seriously harm whales and dolphins more than 31 million times over the next five years throughout Southern California, Hawaii, the Gulf of Mexico, and along the Atlantic Coast, using sonar and other equipment. Last Friday, March 8th, 2013 the California Coastal Commission voted unanimously to reject the Navy’s request due to the input from many environmental groups and over 500,000 ordinary people who took time to let the Navy know how they felt about this issue. The following is a quote from Jana Zimmer, one of the California coastal Commission members:

“I understand you see this 120,000-square mile range as your theater, but the bottom line is we don’t see it that way. That theater is occupied by creatures of the sea,... Because the people of California have worked so hard and so long to create these marine protected areas, you need to start looking at this theater as a theater where some of the seats are reserved.”

Although this victory is not the end of this issue, we feel that because of the actions of people like you, a major turning point has been reached. If you feel moved to say thank you to the Coastal Commission, you can sign this “petition” and we will deliver your thanks to the commission in one week. Thank you for signing and for making this possible. Your actions have made a difference!
