The Turtle Coast Sierra Club's March Membership Meeting will take place on Thursday, March 26, 2015, and will feature a discussion and updates by Bo Platt on Florida Seismic Airgun Testing.
Seismic airguns pose a grave threat to marine wildlife including dolphins, endangered whales, valuable fish, and coastal economies. It is the first step towards the dirty dangerous practice of offshore drilling.
Bo Platt, Surfrider Sebastian Inlet Chapter Executive Committee, will bring news of new talks between the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Oceana, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Even though Florida Water have been removed from the 2017-2022 plan, there are re-applicants to test off Florida’s shores before 2017.
The meeting will take place at the Pineda Unitarian Universalist Friendship Center, 3115 Friendship Place, on US 1 south of Rockledge, 1/2 mile north of Suntree Blvd and next to Landscape Depot.
Social time starts at 6:30 PM and the meeting starts at 7:00 PM. Our meetings are always open to the public.
