The Administration just proposed an offshore drilling program. The good news is that the plan will protect the Atlantic Ocean from oil and gas leasing until 2022.
However, there is some bad news to share. The proposed five-year leasing program would still allow risky oil and gas leasing to go forward in the Arctic Ocean.
Will you help take action for the Arctic Ocean?
The Administration deserves praise for its decision not to allow leasing in the Atlantic Ocean. At the same time, all of us who care about the ocean need to convince the Administration that there is no place for new Arctic lease sales in the final program.
Join Ocean Conservancy in saying no to risky Arctic leasing. Tell President Obama to drop Arctic leasing from the final version of the 2017 to 2022 leasing program.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Ocean Conservancy.
Dear [Secretary Sally Jewell, Department of the Interior],
