Reject Bill Threatening Marine Wildlife

Target: Paul Ryan, United States House Speaker

Goal: Protect the Marine Mammal Protection Act from the gas and oil industry.

Republicans in Congress are threatening marine wildlife with a bill that would grant gas and oil companies permission to expand their operations throughout the oceans. This proposed new law would roll back the Marine Mammal Protection Act, giving the gas and oil industry the green light to harass and even kill innocent marine mammals.

This is unacceptable. Such a bill is a transparent ploy by the Republican party to further line the pockets of their industry giant friends. These people are only proving once again how self-centered they are, seeking ways to obtain as much profit as possible at the expense of living creatures. Dolphins and whales in particular will suffer should this bill pass; they are already critically endangered without another threat to their lives.

We cannot let Congress pass this bill. We must fight it in order to protect the lives of innocent marine wildlife, especially those who cannot afford to lose more of their numbers. Sign this petition to ensure that the Marine Mammal Protection Act remains in place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear House Speaker Ryan,

Congress Republicans have introduced a bill granting the gas and oil industry permission to harm marine wildlife, particularly mammals. This bill would roll back the 45-year-strong Marine Mammal Protection Act, further endangering species of dolphin and whale that are already nearly extinct.

This bill is a transparent ploy to make a profit at the cost of living creatures, and it must not be allowed to pass. Marine wildlife is vital to the environment, and our oceans have suffered enough damage from pollution and oil rigs being built wherever the industry pleases. Reject this bill and help us continue to protect marine mammals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
