Urgent: Offshore Drilling a Threat to Mantoloking

URGENT: Notification from the Mantoloking Environmental Commission

Subject: Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program

If you live, or have visited Mantoloking, anywhere on the Jersey Shore, or anywhere along the US Atlantic coast and its estuaries, this is an important issue that we all need to take action on.

On January 4th, Ryan Zinke, the Secretary of Interior announced the next phase of President Trump’s new 5 year Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program. The plan includes opening the entire Atlantic Ocean from Maine to Florida for drilling including all of the Jersey Shore and New York’s South Shore to come within 3 miles of our beaches.
