Greenpeace supporters like you and I are joining together and rising up to expose corporate polluters like Exxon and Shell, and to protect fragile ecosystems from offshore drilling and exploitation. Our peaceful actions have helped change US policy and pushed a renewable and sustainable energy agenda forward.
These ear-splitting seismic airgun blasts are so loud that they can be heard underwater from 2,500 miles away. The government’s own scientists estimate that seismic blasting in the Atlantic could injure, even deafen or kill, as many as 138,000 whales, dolphins, and other sea life.
Our oceans — and more specifically ocean life like dolphins and whales — depend on our immediate action. Please help power our movement by contributing now, so we can bring an end to this incredibly harmful, potentially deadly method of finding oil beneath the ocean floor — and continue all of our important work.
We’re getting loud too — we’ve sent the historic ship, Arctic Sunrise, on a tour of the Atlantic Coast, amplifying the voices of coastal communities as they call out fossil fuel corporations’ use of seismic airgun blasting in oil exploration.
We have to defend our oceans, coasts, and sea life from fossil fuel companies’ relentless search for finite oil deposits and billion-dollar profits. Together, we can power this movement to put an end to seismic blasting once and for all — but it’s going to take every single one of us to make it happen.
Thank you for doing your part!

P.S. Our nation’s best scientists are warning that seismic airgun blasting in the Atlantic could mean the death and injury of nine critically endangered North Atlantic right whales. Let’s do everything we can to end this horrific practice. Please donate now to support all of Greenpeace’s work.
Greenpeace never takes a dime from corporations or governments. Everything we do is thanks to the generous support of people like you!
