Support the Balloon Bill SB 1107

balloonReleasing 49 balloons in Virginia is completely legal. Yet all of these balloons fall back to the earth as unsightly litter at best, or marine animal killers at worst. Support a change to make all purposeful balloon releases in Virginia illegal. Tell your state lawmakers that you care about the inhabitants of our oceans, waves, and beaches and that you think no balloons should be allowed to be purposefully released into the environment legally.

Protect the Atlantic from Offshore Drilling

Our nation’s coasts provide billions of dollars in economic revenue through recreation, tourism, and healthy seafood. We must protect these benefits by preventing the expansion of offshore drilling. Please make your voice heard and tell your Senators that you support protecting our coasts from the needless expansion of offshore oil and gas development.

Oppose Seismic Testing in the Atlantic

The blasts from seismic air guns have been shown to interfere with the mating, feeding, communication, and migration activities of numerous species, including the endangered Right Whale. Please sign the petition to ask the Department of Interior to cancel plans for seismic exploration off the Atlantic coast.

Take the “Rise Above Plastics” Pledge

RAP

Plastic is forever, with virtually every piece of petroleum-based plastic ever made still in existence. That’s why it’s so critical to our oceans and beaches that we dramatically reduce our use of plastics, especially single-use plastics. This plastic ends up in the stomachs of marine birds and animals. In fact, one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals die globally each year due to ingestion of or entanglement in plastics. You can make a difference for our world’s oceans, waves and beaches – pledge to rise above plastics today!
