Take Action to Protect Our Coasts from New Offshore Drilling

4432
Goal: 5000

Congressional leaders have introduced legislation to permanently ban new offshore oil and gas drilling in U.S. waters including the Atlantic, Pacific, Eastern Gulf of Mexico, and Arctic Ocean. Passing these bills is critical to protecting our marine ecosystems, as well as coastal recreation and tourism opportunities across the United States.

Please take action to protect U.S. coastlines from the expansion of offshore oil and gas drilling.

Offshore drilling is a polluting activity that damages our environment and puts human communities at risk. The industry causes grave impacts through every phase of the process - from exploratory seismic blasting that deafens marine mammals to onshore refineries that harm vulnerable communities to the inevitable oil spills. New drilling would also exacerbate the effects of climate change as our nation and world struggle to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

For decades, Surfrider and our partners have been fighting to protect U.S. coastlines from oil and gas development. This includes our recent successful campaign to stop the last administration from opening over 90% of U.S. waters to offshore drilling. Now, we have the opportunity to permanently protect our coasts in the current Congress. Please take action to protect the Atlantic, Pacific, Eastern Gulf of Mexico and Arctic Ocean from offshore drilling so that our coastlines will be free from new oil rigs!
