Atlantic saved from seismic blasting
The Surfrider Foundation applauds the decision by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to deny all permit applications for seismic blasting off the South and Mid-Atlantic coast. Seismic exploration for oil and gas would cause devastating impacts to marine life, fishing, coastal recreation and tourism. The decision is a huge victory for Surfrider Foundation's ongoing campaign to Protect the Atlantic coast from oil and gas development! While this is good news, there is still much work to be done to protect our coasts from future seismic testing and offshore oil drilling. Find out more and get involved!
