Headlining the event will be Congressman Frank Pallone (NJ-06), who will kick off the forum with introductory remarks. Oceana’s ocean advocate, Nancy Sopko, Clean Ocean Action’s Executive Director Cindy Zipf, Dr. Jessica Coakley from the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Council, and other professionals in the fields of marine mammal acoustics and fisheries management will be speaking on the expert panel
Right now, the oil and gas industry is working to turn an area off the East Coast twice the size of California into a blast zone – potentially killing or injuring more than 138,000 dolphins and whales, threatening the health of regional fisheries and risking the jobs of more than 200,000 people.
In the coming months, the Obama administration will decide whether to allow this dangerous testing to go forward. But we can fight for our coast and convince the administration to make the right decision.
