North Atlantic Right Whale Threatened By Seismic Airgun Use for Oil & Gas Explor

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) on Friday issued a decision that opens the East Coast to seismic exploration for offshore oil and gas. This seismic testing threatens to harm hundreds of thousands of marine mammal populations along the East Coast, including the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale.

Under BOEM’s decision, an area twice the size of California – stretching from the New Jersey/Delaware border down to Cape Canaveral, Florida – will be open to industry use of seismic airguns.
