Save North Carolina's Coast from Offshore Drilling!
North Carolina is world-renowned for its spectacular coastline and the wildlife and abundant fisheries it supports. But right now, our coast is threatened by proposed offshore drilling for oil and gas. This reckless plan presents significant risks and no rewards.
The coast's tourism, recreation, and fishing industries would be significantly threatened by offshore drilling activities. Drilling for oil and gas would also jeopardize the survival of endangered species including the loggerhead sea turtle and right whale. Can you imagine a drilling disaster near wildlife-rich Cape Hatteras or the reefs off Wrightsville Beach?
There's too much at risk to let this plan go forward! It's up to us to show our state and federal leaders that North Carolinians don't want oil and gas drilling off our beautiful natural coast.
Sign the petition today and tell Governor McCrory and state decision-makers that you don't want dangerous offshore drilling off North Carolina's coast.

Subject: Don't allow offshore oil and gas drilling on NC's coast
Dear Governor Pat McCrory and federal decision-makers,
Drilling for oil and gas off of North Carolina's coast presents significant risks with little reward. The coast's tourism, recreation, and fishing industries are dependent upon a healthy environment and thriving natural resources.
NC’s coastal waters are home to endangered wildlife, such as the right whale and loggerhead sea turtles. Offshore drilling poses unnecessary risks to their survival. Please oppose drilling off NC's coast.
Instead, please support the development of NC's significant offshore wind resources and help to make North Carolina a national leader in clean energy.
