Fwd: A ticking time bomb for seals

Subject: A ticking time bomb for seals

UPDATE: This week, scientists reported that some of the dead dolphins from the Gulf found washed ashore earlier this year had oil on them – 8 even traced back specifically to the BP spill!

We can't let another oil spill endanger our coasts and the animals who call them home. Help us stop offshore drilling for good – donate $25 today towards our $50,000 goal before April 20.

Take Action to Protect the World's Oceans

Dear Anne,

Support Oceana


Four bills are moving through Congress right now pushing for more deadly drilling from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

Join Oceana in the fight to stop offshore drilling for good – donate by April 20.

Even with teams working around the clock, it took months to stop oil from spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. Just last month, another oiled dolphin washed up on shore.

The fact is, we simply aren't prepared to deal with oil spills – and offshore oil wells are like ticking time bombs for animals on our coasts, from Pacific harbor seals to Atlantic sea turtles.

Oil companies are putting pressure on Congress to allow more offshore drilling from coast to coast – but we still have time to stop this deadly legislation from passing in the coming weeks.

Pitch in $25 today to help us reach our $50,000 goal so we can fight back against oil companies and prevent more offshore drilling.

Oceana is committed to stopping legislation that would endanger thousands of marine animals and coastal communities – but we need your help to do it. Congress is already considering bills that would make it easier for oil companies to drill from coast to coast, and more dangerous legislation could be introduced in the weeks to come.

We've already seen the terrible toll of an oil spill in the Gulf. In the Arctic or Pacific oceans, another spill would be devastating for the seals, whales, and sea lions who call them home. But if Congress opens our oceans to more dangerous offshore drilling, another oil spill will happen – it's just a matter of when.

By giving today, you can help Oceana prevent another spill by:

Baby Turtle Fighting in Congress to stop legislation that would encourage more drilling, and to support current protections for our oceans;
Baby Turtle Mobilizing grassroots activists to send thousands of letters and phone calls to key members of Congress opposing reckless legislation that puts thousands of animals at risk;
Baby Turtle Educating the public about how we can work together to stop another disaster from happening on our shores; and
Baby Turtle Researching the impact of oil spills on ocean ecosystems and the animals who call them home.

Donate $25 today to protect whales and seals from another deadly oil spill.

Thank you for being a voice for ocean animals.

For the oceans,
Jackie Savitz
