In order to protect whales, dolphins and other marine life, I'm urging you to reconsider from opening the Atlantic Coast to oil and gas exploration using seismic airguns.

Government estimates show that at least 138,500 marine mammals may be injured or killed, and countless more disturbed. Allowing seismic testing to go forward would put our entire Atlantic Coast ecosystem at risk.

Please reconsider granting seismic granting permits on the Atlantic Coast.

Signed,

Whales and dolphins from Delaware to Florida will soon be injured or killed by sounds 100,000 times louder than a jet engine. President Obama's office just approved the use of seismic testing for offshore oil exploration all along the East Coast.

At least 138,500 dolphins and whales, including endangered species like the North Atlantic right whale and blue whale, will be injured or killed if we don't stop the permitting process.
