Stop the Navy's plan to bomb a pacific paradise

Action: Save Our Oceans

May 22, 2015   Action Alert ID# 224

 

As part of a larger move to expand war training in American waters and territories throughout the world, the U.S. Navy is planning to ramp up war games on two islands in the Pacific's Northern Mariana Islands -- Tinian and Pagan -- a deadly proposal we need your help to stop.

Under the Navy's current plan, expanded military activities will include air-to-ground assaults, live-fire weapons training, bombing exercises, and amphibious warfare. The activities are expected to destroy key habitat for corals, sea turtles, marine mammals, and the imperiled Tinian monarch. And of course it's also a nightmare for the 3,000 residents of Tinian Island, as well as the 3,000 native islanders of Pagan who seek to return after being evacuated due to a volcano eruption.

And lest the Navy forget: as it works to protect national security, it also has a duty not to harm the heritage it's fighting for -- including minimizing the harm it does to endangered wildlife and habitat.
