#StickIt to offshore drilling

With summer here and many visitors heading to our treasured beaches, SELC is launching a campaign to #StickIt to offshore drilling. This campaign provides regular reminders of just how much is at stake if the Trump administration succeeds in its efforts to open the Atlantic to offshore drilling.

The Trump administration is aggressively pursuing opening the Atlantic coast to offshore drilling and seismic blasting, and this is a critical time for public input. It’s important we remind coastal visitors, locals, and officials alike that the coast has spoken: No Offshore Drilling.

It’s easy to participate in the campaign. Anyone can post a photo on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) of the coalition’s Protect Our Coast sticker or yard sign, then tag it with the phrase: #stickit to offshore drilling. We’ll be collecting and sharing the images over the summer.

To receive a new sticker, or send one to a friend, order them free here.
