This event is in the past.
Join us on the riverfront at the NW corner at the foot of the Bridge of Lions - to demonstrate that St. Augustine and the Beaches Communities oppose seismic testing and offshore drilling.
We have plans to make seismic testing and offshore drilling an election issue in the governor and attorney general races.
We will discuss this effort at the gathering . Voters deserve to know candidates' positions on offshore drilling before the November 4th election. Candidates for governor and attorney general have been sent questions about their positions on oil and gas drilling off Florida's east coast, and that effort will be discussed at the gathering. Candidate responses to our letter and all continuing news on these permits will be posted here so check back for updates. follow Matanzas Riverkeeper on Facebook or email.

Add your voice to ours
Matanzas Riverkeeper, along with Friends of Matanzas, Florida Wildlife Federation, South Anastasia Community Association, Environmental Youth Council of St. Augustine, Oceana, Surfrider Foundation, and others have opposed seismic testing because of its destructive impacts on marine mammals, including endangered Right Whales, and coastal communities.
We are joined in our opposition locally, by St. Johns County, the City of St. Augustine, and St. Augustine Beach
