Speak out against ship pollution in Puget Sound.
Dear Liz,
Few aquatic environments in the U.S. can compare to Puget Sound's natural beauty and marine resources. The Sound supports thousands of animal and plant species, from orcas and herrings to eelgrass.
But all that could change if oil giant BP gets its way.
BP is looking to expand oil tanker traffic in Puget Sound. With each new tanker, there is a new risk of an oil spill that would be devastating to the area's marine life.
There are two hearings this month to discuss an environmental review of BP's plans. Unfortunately, the review is sorely lacking and needs to consider other key environmental information and alternatives.
To show that you care about the health of Puget Sound, please join us and make sure your voice is heard.  
Speak out against BP's plans to make Puget Sound their tanker highway. Attend and testify at a public hearing.
When and Where:
July 16, 7-9 pm: Shuksan Middle School Gymnasium, 2717 Alderwood Ave., Bellingham, WA 98225
July 24, 7-9 pm: Federal Center S. Galaxy Room, 4735 East Marginal Way S., Seattle, WA 98134
Planning on coming? Please RSVP by sending me an email (felleman@comcast.net) to let me know you'll be there, and I'll send you talking points to use in your testimony.
Sincerely,
Fred Felleman,
Friends of the Earth
