Tell the US Navy and Shell Oil to Stop Testing Harmful Acoustic Devices Near Whales and Dolphins!

      Ocean Protectors

Each year thousands of whales and dolphins wash up on the world’s beaches either dead or dying but the cause of death is unknown. The bodies of these dead whales and dolphins are horribly bruised and beaten but mysteriously no bones inside the whales and dolphins are broken. So what killed these whales and dolphins? The answer might be Navy Sonar exercises. Several of these exercises and their deadly aftermath have been recorded. Here is a brief list.

 

Bahamas – March 2000

Canary Islands – November 1988, October 1989, December 1991, September 2002, July 2004

Washington State – May 2003

North Carolina – January 2005

Japan – Ten Stranding’s Since 1960

Greece – May 1996

US Virgin Islands – October 1999

Portugal – May 2000

Brazil – June-October 2002

Gulf of California – September 2002

Hawaii – July 1998, July 2004

Italy – May 1963

Tasmainia – October 2005

Spain – January 2006

United Kingdom – June 2006, September 2012

 

But it isn’t just the Navy hurting whales and dolphins with sound.

Up in Alaska Shell Oil uses compressed air guns to search for oil beneath the sea floor. This practice kills whales and dolphins and is just as damaging as the high frequency sonar used by the Navy. So sign this petition and tell the US Navy and Shell Oil to quit there deadly acoustic practices!

      Behind every cruelty lies a guilty man who has committed it. And 1,000 more people who have not prevented it. I don't want to be one of them!

      Marine animals have very sensitive ears. When they come up to shore bleeding from their ears, eyes, & mouths, and eventually die, they are screaming that this cruelty must stop! Figure out another way to do your tests!
