The federal agency charged with protecting marine mammals wants to green-light a U.S. Navy training plan that could kill more than 1,000 of them. Take action & tell them to do their job of protecting marine mammals by rejecting the Navy's reckless plan.

The National Marine Fisheries Service is prepared to give the Navy a permit to use high-powered explosives and deafening sonar during five years of training and testing -- with devastating impacts on whales, dolphins and other marine mammals.
The Fisheries Service needs to hear an immediate outcry from hundreds of thousands of us. The Navy's own Environmental Review concedes that its plan would harass, injure or kill marine mammals more than 31 million times in the ocean waters off the East Coast, Southern California, Hawaii and the Gulf states. That includes millions of cases of temporary hearing loss, more than 5,000 serious injuries and more than 1,000 deaths -- a toll three times higher than the impacts of any previous Navy plan.
Urge the Fisheries Service to put areas with high concentrations of marine mammals off-limits to sonar and explosives.
