Protect the Gulf of St. Lawrence

No one wants another disaster like the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. But it can easily happen in the Gulf of St. Lawrence now that the federal government has approved oil and gas exploration and drilling there.

The Gulf of St. Lawrence is the world’s largest estuary. Its special mixture of salt and fresh water creates a fragile home for distinct species like the Greenland Shark and Beluga Whale.

The endangered Blue Whale and Leatherback Turtle rely on it for their near-term survival, while thousands of people rely on it for fishing and tourism jobs, and millions enjoy life along its shores.
