Action: Save Our Oceans

July 24, 2015   Action Alert ID# 252

 

The northeast coast of Florida hosts the only known calving grounds of the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis), and it's home to spectacular deepwater banks of ivory tree coral (Oculina varicosa) that support a vast array of marine wildlife, including more than 350 invertebrate species.

That's why it's so exciting that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is considering designating Eubalaena Oculina National Marine Sanctuary. This area is like no other, and protecting it would be good news for all marine wildlife -- not just the whales and corals for which the sanctuary would be named.

There's just one big hitch: The area is also being pursued by oil and gas companies eager to survey and drill for its buried fossil fuels.
