Send A Clear Message - No to Offshore Oil Drilling

    On January 4, 2018, Secretary Zinke of The US Department of the Interior released a draft proposed plan to open US waters to new off shore oil and gas exploration and drilling. Starting in 2019, 47 leases would be offered to global energy companies to explore and drill in US coastal waters in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Arctic, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans.

    Sea Save Foundation believes this is a reckless and dangerous plan for oceans, marine ecosystems, and the industries that depend on their health. The history of the Santa Barbara off shore spill in 1969, the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska in 1989, and the BP Deep Water Horizon catastrophe in 2010 have shown Americans what can happen when safety is not our first priority.
