Drilling is Tragic for Marine Life
Our coasts are home to stunning wildlife and incredible beaches, from the Georgia Barrier Islands to the Outer Banks to the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately offshore drilling is putting our natural heritage and marine life at risk. On ‘good’ days, drilling kills and injures wildlife and threatens human health and the economy. When they happen (which is all too frequently) major disasters such as the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon blowout are catastrophic.
