Photoshoot & Presentation on Seismic Surveys & Offshore Drilling (March 19)

If you think that drilling for oil off the coast is a good idea, we urge you to look at the facts… or better yet, just take a look at history. There’s an overwhelming response here on the Outer Banks that is opposed to offshore oil for good reason. Every one of these people depend on a clean beach for their businesses to survive. It’s hard to ignore how much money our tourism industry makes — which supports not only the state but every single family that resides in it. One spill is all it takes to put multiple industries out of business. So why risk it? That’s the purpose of this meeting. To show your opposition to the offshore oil industry and the Trump administration because our families and jobs are (once again) at risk.


Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation and the Surfrider Outer Banks Chapter on Tuesday, March 19, for a photoshoot with Jenni Koontz of Epic Shutter Photography from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. to update content on the webpage. At 6:00 p.m., Michael Flynn, federation coastal advocate, will present information about the current state of development of proposed seismic surveying and offshore drilling for oil and gas along the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf.

The event will be held at the Hatteras Community Center and is free to attend.


There are ways to create jobs, revenue and energy in North Carolina. But offshore drilling is Not the Answer.


Call the White House (202-456-1111) and Department of Interior (202-208- 3100) and ask President Trump not to risk NC’s proven, more profitable coastal tourism industry in a risky pursuit for offshore petroleum.

Call Governor Roy Cooper’s office at 919-814-2000 and thank him for protecting the jobs and revenue our precious coastline already produces.

Then call your state senators and representatives and tell them, there are ways to create jobs, revenue and energy in North Carolina. But offshore drilling is Not the Answer.


Read on for a list of federal and coastal NC decision-makers. Phone calls are often work best, but a personal, well-spoken email is also effective.
