The oceans are a place where whales should swim and play, but the Navy is destroying the tranquility of the sea.

In the Pacific Northwest, off the coast of Washington, Oregon and California, the Navy has dropped "practice" bombs into the ocean and blasted high-intensity sonar into areas critical to endangered orcas, dolphins and other marine mammals.

What's not easily seen may be easy to ignore -- but Navy sonar puts these animals at risk of severe and permanent hearing loss. And even when the sonar doesn't result in physical injury, it can disrupt feeding, migration and breeding or drive these animals from areas vital to their survival.

While we won a temporary victory in 2013 -- when a court sided with us that the government had not considered important new science about the dangerous impacts of sonar -- the problems have still not been cured.

Act now and urge the Navy to find a way to train that won't bring unnecessary harm to our ocean's highly vulnerable wildlife.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
