Pierce Brosnan, actor, producer and environmentalist, has released a video drawing attention to a Navy training plan that will put the safety of whales at risk.

Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC) is suing the Navy over this plan that demonstrates a blatant disregard for marine mammal life. Brosnan, a loud and proud marine mammal advocate, explains in the video that the reckless Navy exercises could kill and injure up to a total of an astounding 14,000 marine mammals combined.

Marine mammals depend on sonar to communicate with one another, find food and navigate their ocean environments. The Navy’s use of sonar and explosives so loud that they can deafen will leave injured marine mammals vulnerable and fighting for survival. With a proposed 300,000 hours of deafening sonar to be used, the loud noises can and will cause the hemorrhaging of whales’ internal organs. If that wasn’t horrifying enough, underwater explosions that will take place every two minutes for the next five years will threaten areas where whales live, feed and mate.

Brosnan encourages everyone to raise their voices and fight to protect marine wildlife. He says, “The Navy should be putting vital whale habitat off limits to sonar and explosives during routine training. But they won’t do that unless you and I speak out right now.” Let’s defend these majestic creatures by making our voices heard.

    More than 1,000 whales and other marine mammals could be killed? No, the Navy report only requests authorization to take 2 whales per year. Check your facts, Mr. Bond!

    Even after exaggerating the number 100 times, it still pales in comparison to the real issue, which is commercial fishing (650,000 marine mammals per year).

    Listening to celebrities and focusing on this non-issue isn’t helping to save the whales.
