Locals Voice Their Concerns About Exploratory Oil Drilling in The Bahamas

We write to express our vigorous opposition to oil drilling in Bahamian waters and strongly urge that you move immediately to cancel all existing licences, reject all proposed renewals and impose a permanent moratorium on fossil fuel exploration anywhere within our maritime borders.

We therefore strongly advise you to intervene to protect our vital economic, recreational and ecological treasures before it is too late.
