In 2015 -2016, we fought hard to show the administration how valuable our coastal waters are to our community, our ecosystems, our economy, our way of life. As a result, the Obama administration excluded the Altantic Coast from the 5-year oil and gas leasing program.
However, in January 2018, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) released the draft proposed program for 2019-2024 that would open up the Atlantic Coast to oil and gas exploration and drilling.
On December 2, 2019, the Woodbine City Council unanimously passed a resolution in opposition to offshore drilling and seismic testing on the Georgia Coast. Read the resolution here.
Sign this petitionto urge President Biden to permanently protect our coasts and oceans from the dangers of offshore drilling.
