Our Opposition to Seismic Airgun Blasting
Seismic testing is the action of emitting extremely loud explosions from an array of compressed air canisters towed behind a large ship on the surface of the ocean, and from those explosions, obtain a relative “picture” or indication of potential oil and gas deposits below the seafloor. This testing can impact our coastal community economy, threaten our fisheries and have long-lasting impacts on critically endangered marine mammals.
Please continue to join with Coastal Carolina Riverwatch, Crystal Coast Waterkeeper and White Oak-New Riverkeeper Alliance to say “No” to seismic testing and offshore drilling.
