The U.S. Navy is seeking permission to stress, injure, and even kill marine mammals tens of millions of times, just to run training drills.
The Navy would be testing sonar and explosives so powerful, the blasts can destroy a whale’s hearing, cause brain hemorrhaging, and leave marine mammals so disoriented that they beach themselves.
All the Navy needs in order to secure their proposal is approval from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and right now NMFS is considering giving the Navy what it wants. Only with enough public outrage will NMFS stand up to the Navy.
There are just a few days left in the public comment period to flood NMFS with messages speaking up for the millions of whales and dolphins that cannot speak for themselves.
Take action now to demand that NMFS do what is right and reject the Navy’s plan.
