Campaign Update: On February 8, 2021, the drilling company announced that they did not find oil in the first location. However, the company still has additional exploration licenses in The Bahamas. The threat to this ocean nation still looms, and so the campaign continues. Please sign the petition below urging the Prime Minister to permanently ban offshore oil drilling in The Bahamas.
The Bahamas is an ocean nation, with remarkable marine resources and wildlife that have supported local industry and brought visitors from around the world.
But a new oil drilling project could change that. And it’s starting in a matter of months. Just one accident, one spill, can devastate marine systems in the region and the foundation of the economy, employment, food sources, recreation, culture, and the Bahamian way of life.
