Under the surface of the Atlantic lie underwater kingdoms that support everything from blue whales to coral to algae to seabirds. this massive collection of marine wonders - known as the New England Coral Canyons and Seamounts -- lies 150 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, and as deep sea mining and trawling technology advances, the future of this magical place is uncertain.
Without permanent protections, this vast underwater paradise, home to a vast array offragile cold water coral and the only seamounts on the Atlantic seaboard, could be lost forever due to threats from deep sea trawling, overfishing, and deep sea mining.
President Obama is considering designating the New England Coral Canyons and Seamounts as a National Marine Monument but he needs to know you support permanent protections for this vulnerable underwater ecosystem.
