Rachel For NRDC Action Fund

Rachel For NRDC Action Fund

Rachel and NRDC teamed up last year for the documentary “Sonic Sea“. If you are a subscriber of their newsletter you have received a newsletter written on behave of Rachel herself asking people to join the NRDC Action Fund to ask representatives in Congress to say NO to weakening the landmark Marine Mammal Protection Act to fast-track oil and gas drilling.

Dear [name],

When I was narrating Sonic Sea, NRDC’s breathtaking, Emmy-winning film about threats to marine life from industrial noise, I spent countless hours watching underwater footage.

And it probably won’t surprise you to learn what captured my heart the most: Whales. Dolphins. Seals. Sea lions. Manatees.

These remarkable marine mammals surprised me again and again with their beauty and intelligence, and their sense of humor.

So when I heard that Congress is considering legislation that would gut the bedrock conservation bill that protects marine mammals in U.S. waters, I knew I had to speak out.

Join me and tell your representative in Congress to say NO to weakening the landmark Marine Mammal Protection Act to fast-track oil and gas drilling.
