Any day now, Donald Trump’s Interior Department could reveal the next phase of its plan to hand over nearly all of our oceans to Big Oil.
This plan would threaten fishing, tourism, and the livelihoods of millions of Americans in coastal communities. What’s more, it would be devastating to the health of our oceans and marine life. And it would contribute to climate chaos.
But despite these effects, Trump wants to let the oil industry drill in more places than ever before -- including opening areas that have long been off-limits. If Big Oil is allowed to drill in these areas, it will only be a matter of time before the next Deepwater Horizon-scale disaster. We need your help to stop Trump’s plan!

Trump is clearly putting Big Oil’s profits ahead of the people who live in coastal communities nationwide. Many of these communities depend on fishing and tourism for a healthy economy -- but oil drilling puts all of that at risk.
This plan would roll back decades of environmental progress. The only ones who would benefit would be Big Oil executives. But the damage would be felt from the Atlantic to the Pacific and the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico.
Offshore drilling is unnecessary and dangerous -- not just for the oceans, but for everyone. Since these waters belong to the American people -- not fossil fuel companies -- the Trump Administration should be protecting them for future generations. But the Administration would rather help Big Oil make more profits now than preserve our environment for the future.
Take action now: Demand the Department of the Interior protect our oceans from Big Oil!
From Exxon Valdez to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, Big Oil has proven that it’s willing to endanger everyone and everything living in and near the ocean, as long as it makes a profit.
Trump’s Five Year Plan would be disastrous for America’s coastal communities and the ocean ecosystems upon which they depend. The Trump plan to sell off our oceans to the highest corporate bidder must be stopped!
Take action now to stop Trump from handing over our oceans to Big Oil!
