Over the last few months, support has grown to permanently protect our most precious ocean areas, the Cashes Ledge Area and the New England Canyons and Seamounts. If you are among those who signed our petition to President Obama, thank you! Your voice is making a difference.
But now we need your help once again. Your Senators need to hear from as many constituents as we can rally that you support this Marine National Monument. Please, call your Senators today with this urgent message. Just a few minutes of your time could help create a remarkable legacy of protected areas for future generations.
Step 1: Call the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak with one of your senators.
Step 2: When someone answers, say:
“Hello! My name is ________. I am a constituent, and I ask Senator ________ to support a Marine National Monument designation for Cashes Ledge and the coral canyons and seamounts in order to save vulnerable species and ensure a healthy ocean for future generations.”
That’s all you have to say! Want to add more? Here’s what permanently protecting New England’s ocean treasures will ensure:
- Protection from industrial exploration, including oil and gas drilling
- Insights from scientific research, which are especially crucial in the face of climate change
- A healthy economy: thriving fish and whale populations boost local fishing and tourism industries
Step 3: Click here to let us know how your calls went. It helps us to know that you’ve called, and your feedback helps us in determining our next steps in this critical campaign.
Thank you for your continued commitment to CLF and the creation of the Atlantic’s first Marine National Monument. We can’t do it without you.
