The Navy is required to include comments on their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) re: the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii and off the coast of California. According to their estimates it will deafen 11,200 whales and dolphins and kill 1,600 more over the next 7 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. Your signature and comment will have to be included in the EIS and could stop this Naval program, potentially saving the lives of these ocean creatures. The comments must be in by July 10, 2012.
If you would like to help put a stop to this, please sign a petition to U.S. Navy EIS Comments, which says:
“Stop the killing of 1,600 whales and dolphins and the deafening of 11,200 more by ceasing the operation of the Navy’s underwater sound system in the Hawaiian Islands and California coastline.”
