In January of 2019 President Donald Trump released a statement that he plans to expand offshore drilling in the United States.
More offshore drilling means more oil spills which increases the chances of wildlife and ecosystems to be negatively affected.
Oil drilling has a long history of disastrous spills including the Gulf of Mexico spill in 2010 which ended in $17 billion in damages and thousands of animals dead.
Many states have publicly opposed this including California, Oregon, New Jersey, Massachusetts New York, Maryland, Delaware, New Hampshire, North and South Carolina and Connecticut.
Please help to put the environment and safety of wildlife and ecosystems above industrial benefits.
