Friends of the Ocean…
WE HAVE AN URGENT CALL FOR ACTION: Please sign and share this petition to save 33.5 million incidents of TAKE on marine mammals, http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/tell-the-navy-call-off?source=c.url&r_by=5402050
Continuing a trend of reckless disregard for the will of the people and the health of our environment, the US Navy has announced it will not only be disregarding environmental safety precautions suggested by the California Coastal Commission, they will actually be greatly increasing the death toll of whales and other marine life by ramping up the volume and scope of sonar testing.
“The US Navy is the enemy of all that lives and breathes in our precious Mother Ocean. These troglodytes are only interested in their war industry and have neither our safety nor the safety of our ocean in mind.” - Joey Racano
PLEASE Sign and share!
The US Navy, by their own figures, expects to kill, hurt or maim and harass some 33.5 million marine mammals beginning January 2014. These war games, known as HSTT (Hawaii-Southern California Training and Testing) will stretch from San Diego to Hawaii.
Meanwhile, off Australia, a Mother Humpback was observed saving her calf by hiding behind a boat, shielding them both from sonar blasts eminating from an approaching Navy warship engaged in sonar games.
