Tell Navy- Stop Assault Whales with Sonar and Explosives

The Navy estimates that its five-year plan of proposed training and testing with sonar and explosives will harass, injure or kill whales, dolphins and other sea mammals more than 33 million times- an unprecedented level of harm to marine life.

The plan has the potential to fatally injury the lungs and other organs of marine mammals, and cause permanant hearing loss and death.

Training and testing with sonar and explosives is set to take place off the coasts of Hawaii, Southern California, the Atlantic seaboard, and the Gulf states from 2014 to 2019.

We ask the U.S, Navy to present reasonable alternatives that would significantly reduce the unprecedented level of harm to marine life- such as off limit sanctuaries for marine mammals that are already vunerable and threatened with extinction.
