A project to mine 225,000 acres of seabed in Baja California's San Ignacio lagoon threatens the myriad sea life of the area...not just Gray whales but Blues, Humpbacks and Loggerhead turtles, from noise, disturbance and radioactive releases.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
So, there will hopefully be a protest in Boston in July regarding this to bring attention to the matter. Otherwise, those on Facebook and Twitter can take action at the end of the article. I'm glad this is not a "done deal" as of yet.

The primary concern should be the welfare of these babies; we can not now overlook their existence and let mining take precedence.

Noted, Thanks Cal. This is a worrying article and I hope it does not get the go ahead. Have we not damaged the seas enough. Human greed as no limits!

Are we flipping out of our minds?!!! We haven't destroyed enough of the 30% of the planet we have hold of, now we need to do the same with the sea bed? Can the extinction of humanity be far behind?
