  • Public Comment Needed to Stop Seismic Airgun Testing Off Our Shores – Join the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners in opposition to seismic airgun testing off the Florida coastline. Seismic airgun testing is used to find offshore oil and gas deposits by shooting extremely loud bursts of sound every ten seconds for days or weeks at a time. The potential impacts to marine life could be catastrophic with as many as 38 marine species impacted, including the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale. Visit the BOEM website and enter your comment that Seismic Airgun Testing off St. Johns County's shoreline is unacceptable and will negatively impact our residents, visitors, and marine wildlife. More information and other options for submitting your comments before the May 7, 2014 deadline.
