(Save The Arctic) The people of the tiny Hamlet of Clyde River, Nunavut — one of the most remote communities in the world — have launched a courageous legal challenge against oil exploration in their waters. They are taking action to protect Canada’s Arctic from oil spills.

A Canadian government regulator has recently approved a five-year oil exploration project off Clyde River’s coast, which allows seismic testing — a process of firing loud sonic explosions through the ocean to find oil — as a first step towards dangerous Arctic oil drilling.

But it’s not just the oil drilling that’s dangerous — these explosions can disrupt migration paths of marine animals like narwhals, sometimes causing permanent hearing loss, and in the worst case, even death.

Please join this brave community in their fight to protect their home, the narwhals and the Arctic, by telling the Canadian government and their energy regulator to stop dangerous oil exploration in Canada’s Arctic now.
