NO to seismic blasting in New Zealand

Whale
An urgent call:

According to Greenpeace New Zealand the biggest seismic blasting vessel in the world has entered New Zealand waters. It came for no other reason than to search for oil.

Not only to talk about climate change issues due to oil usage but it’s also harmful to whales, dolphins and other marine life. The ship fires massive seismic blasts creating shockwaves that penetrate the ocean and the seafloor every ten seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for weeks and months on end.

Whales and dolphins depend on their hearing to survive, whether it’s for locating prey or predators, or communicating with mates. Without any hearing they cannot survive.

This all is going on in an area stretching between Napier and Kaikoura – an area with pristine waters which is inhabited by thousands of whales and dolphins.
