Protecting Our Coasts from
Offshore Oil and Gas

Join Us to Learn How You Can Get Involved

The Trump Administration has proposed opening the Atlantic Ocean to new offshore oil and gas exploration. This represents a danger to New England’s pristine and treasured coastline. Join us for an evening on January 10th at the Simons IMAX Theater at the New England Aquarium to learn about the proposed plan and what’s at stake for Massachusetts from community leaders and experts. Find out how you can help protect our coastline.

The evening begins with a screening of Shore Stories, a series of film shorts on offshore drilling and gas exploration, its development and production and its impacts on local communities. Our expert panel will end the evening with a robust audience-led Q&A session moderated by Vikki Spruill, President and CEO of the New England Aquarium. Panelists include: 

Dr. Scott Kraus, Chief Scientist and Vice President, Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium

Chris Adams, Chief of Staff, Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce

Beth Casoni, Executive Director, Massachusetts Lobstermen’s Association

Join us. Help protect our coasts. The New England Aquarium is partnering with the Surfrider Foundation, Surfrider Foundation Massachusetts Chapter, Environment America, Women Working for Oceans, Environment Massachusetts, and 350 Cape Cod.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and event begins at 6:30 p.m. In case of inclement weather, this event will be held on January 14. Please check our website for information about cancellations, we will make an announcement by 3 p.m.
