We are deeply saddened to report that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has released their draft 5-year lease plan for 2019-2024. The proposal seeks to open 90% of offshore waters to oil and gas exploration, including the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, North, Atlantic, Straits of Florida, Pacific, and Arctic. We need your support in our fight to protect Florida’s Gulf coast from dirty, dangerous offshore drilling! Click here to learn more.
