Underwater seismic testing sounds like dynamite going off outside your home, over and over again. The sound carries for thousands of miles, and marine animals can't escape it. Dolphins and whales might beach themselves to get away, or, if they're too clos

The loud noises can make communication impossible, cutting these social animals off from their families. When faced with this noise, endangered whales stop singing for mates and dolphin mothers can no longer whistle at their babies.

The Department of the Interior is proposing seismic testing along the Middle and South Atlantic. Tens of thousands of dolphins and whales will be affected, including endangered right whales, whose only known calving grounds are at the edge of the testing zone. Tell President Obama that we need to protect dolphins and whales in the Atlantic, not drive them away.

It is a simple fact of being empathetic, not to your fellow humans, but to everything that occupies the planet earth with you. A dolphin, and thousands other animals, have to endure our stupidity, ignorance, and greed. We humans should be thankful many animals can't actually perform what they are thinking about the almighty human.

Humans don't care in general about is happening around the world. The majority of mankind is asleep thinking that everything is going to be just fine. The planet is going downhill, the animals are disappearing at an alarming rate...Dolphins are the dogs of the Sea and they need protection...
