Blue Climate Solutions joined Environment Florida, 1Sky, Miami Surfrider and others to protest oil drilling off Florida.
April 18 / Miami FL / Blue Climate Solutions joined Environment Florida, 1Sky, Miami Surfrider, Urban Paradise Guild and others rallying to urge President Obama to protect Florida's beaches and coastal ecosystems from oil drilling on Thursday, April 15th.
An oil spill could potentially foul local beaches, coral reefs, and blue carbon ecosystems, such as mangrove forests, saltwater marshlands and shallow seagrass meadows.
Obama was in Miami to attend a fundraiser at the Adrienne Arsht Center.
We hope that Thursday’s protest will help the Obama Administration scrutinize the wisdom of opening oil drilling close to these valuable and fragile ecosystems.
