"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
In April of 2017, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order that seeks to open areas of the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, Arctic and possibly even the Pacific to offshore drilling. ACT remains resolute in our mission to protect Assateague Island and the surrounding coastal bays region from the impacts that will surely come from oil and gas development off our coast. We are working in partnership with communities and organizations here locally, up and down the East Coast, and beyond to coordinate a unified response in opposition to this dangerous and irresponsible proposal.
To help you stay informed, we've put together this webpage which includes action items, information about oil reserves in the Atlantic, and the potential impacts of seismic airgun surveys that would precede any drilling. We will be keeping this page updated with new developments and action items as they unfold, so please stay tuned.
If you would like to support ACT in this campaign, please consider a gift to our Atlantic Defense Fund. Even a small gift goes a long way towards keeping our coast safe from the dangers of offshore drilling.
