Create the first-ever marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean

Action: Save Our Oceans

January 2, 2016   Action Alert ID# 318

 

Just off the shores of New England, a fragile undersea mountain range brimming with rare marine wildlife—such as critically endangered North Atlantic right whales—is threatened with destruction.

But there’s a chance to save it. Tell the Obama administration to make history and create the first-ever marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean.

New England’s “Grand Canyons,” sea mountains, and Cashes Ledge are national treasures. These precious ecosystems provide refuge for hundreds of species of rare and unique marine wildlife. These areas are also critical to the health of our ocean fish, the lifeblood of Atlantic coastal communities.

Earthjustice has been fighting to protect our ocean ecosystems and we need your help!

Unfortunately, these fragile undersea places are threatened with destruction from overfishing and industrial exploitation, as the deep ocean has become more accessible to drilling, mining and damaging commercial fishing. Leading scientists agree, now is the time to protect New England’s Grand Canyons, sea mountains and Cashes Ledge before it’s too late.

Overwhelming public support is needed to persuade the Obama administration to protect these special places with a marine national monument designation. Send a message now to weigh in on this important decision.
