Join us in Belmar urging Governor Christie to keep fighting for the Ocean & stop ocean blasting!
Despite calls, emails, and letters, Rutgers University is still moving forward with blasting our ocean and could begin their seismic study this Monday June 1st! Tomorrow we need all hands on deck! Governor Christie will be in Belmar at 2:30 PM at Ocean Avenue and North Blvd.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Governor Christie for fighting ocean blasting and urge him to keep on fighting. The NJDEP has used its power under federal law to reject the study due to the negative impact on fisheries as well as marine mammals. Rutgers University has become deaf to these issues NJDEP, elected officials, and the public our raising regarding harm to marine life.
We need Governor Christie to continue to stand strong and stop this seismic study! Will you join us? We need as many people in Belmar as possible. Rutgers could begin blasting our ocean as soon as June 1st and if allowed they can cause "any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance" to 18,547 marine mammals!
When: Friday May 29th at 2 PM
Where: Ocean Avenue & North Blvd, Belmar, NJ
Thank you and please spread the word!
