PROTECT ENDANGERED WHALES FROM LETHAL MID-FREQUENCY SONAR
The Natural Resources Defense Council has advised that the U. S. Navy wants to put a testing ground for lethal mid-frequency sonar along the migratory path of the highly endangered northern right whales, off the coast of North Carolina. The proposal would create a testing range of 500 square miles year round.
Just a year ago, 37 whales of 3 different species beached themselves on the shores of the Outer Banks near the proposed testing range. Beached whales have been found with bleeding around their brains and ears after encounters with this lethal technology. Time is short you can go on line and tell the Navy to reconsider the sensitive locations for its testing.
