Save the Dolphins of Belize


It is our continuous struggle to fight greedy corps looking to make money while ravaging the earth and the indigenous populations be they human or animal. This struggle seems to be endless so be vigilant and support these causes in whatever way you can.

In the peaceful waters just off the coast of Belize, oil companies are preparing to drill in the Barrier Reef.
Secret government deals have given these companies the right to send booming sound waves from oil-seeking air guns reverberating through the reef, hurting sensitive dolphins – and even leading them to beach themselves and die.
But with your help, we can protect these dolphins and the reef they call home. Oceana is working with the people of Belize to put a national referendum in place that would stop offshore drilling in Belize for good. Will you join the fight and donate $40? We have just $13,000 to go to meet our $30,000 goal! Belize’s citizens should decide the future of the reef – not oil companies in secret back-room deals.
That’s why, with your help, we’re working with the people of Belize to run a nationwide campaign that includes educational ads on the dangers of drilling, developing scientific reports that underscore the importance of the reef, and house-to-house canvassing so every citizen knows what’s at stake.
But we need to match the oil companies’ money, influence and connections. Your support today will help ensure we have the resources to win, and that the people of Belize can act to protect their dolphins and barrier reef from deadly offshore drilling.
