So why the denial Cape Cod? Where is the advocacy for the dolphins and whales who are having to contend with an aggressive Naval program that is only expanding. Why is this allowed to continue? Many people seem unaware that NOAA has signed permits for the Navy to â€œtakeâ€ huge numbers of dolphins and whales as â€œincidentalâ€ to sonar, underwater detonations, and other Wartime activities:
This letter of Authorization is just for the Atlantic ocean alone!
How are these numbers acceptable. Up to 21,2212 common dolphins can be â€œtakenâ€ meaning killed or harassed by the U.S. Navy. What does this mean for dolphins? Each year the death and destruction will increase as sonar becomes more powerful and as the U.S. Navy continues to increase the use.
Why do government funded scientists and marine mammals specialists seem to be looking the other way when it come to the Navy? Could it be all in the name of science. It seems because this is a new area of study government funded some scientists are clamoring to get in on the data and studies.
â€œItâ€™s amazing work,â€ she said. How could anyone call this amazing? This video was taken in 2003. Imagine how advanced sonar is today, louder with pings traveling farther.Thanks to scientists on the West Coast dedicated to saving cetaceans from sonar control the Navyâ€™s sonar activities will not be swept under the rug!
Is the suffering of dolphins and whales from these sonar exercises worth the â€œdataâ€. Is the trade off worth it? Come on world open your eyes to the terrible suffering. Together we can silence deadly sonar! Please take a moment and contact Jim Levy in who has signed these terrible Letters of Authorization for the Navy to â€œtakeâ€ dolphins and whales incidental to sonar use. Let him know we will not accept the increased use of sonar by the Navy! We believe homeland security is important but not when it is causing such suffering in our ocean cousins. Request information on any upcoming permits for sonar that he has not authorized! email@example.com
Join us as we fight to silence sonar and air-guns before it destroys all the whales and dolphins in the ocean!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
