Papua New Guinea: Stop the deep sea mine

To the government of Papua New Guinea and prospective investors:

As concerned citizens from around the world, we call on you to do your part to halt Nautilus Minerals' efforts to rip apart the ocean floor in Papua New Guinea. Deep sea mining could be catastrophic for our climate and biodiversity. Our ecosystems are fragile and we simply don’t know the risks posed by this kind of industrial activity. You have the power to unlock untold damage to the health and future of our planet, or to set a critical precedent of protection -- we ask you to act with that responsibility in mind.

A Canadian mining company has a license for an insane idea that could become a planetary disaster: the world's first deep sea mine.

We all know how toxic mines can devastate land-based ecosystems -- imagine corporations unleashed to dig up the ocean floor for minerals, far from any scrutiny. It's the last thing our dying oceans need!

The good news is the company is having trouble raising funds. Let's drop an ocean of condemnation on this project, scare any further investors away, and make sure this horrific new threat to our environment dies quickly. Sign the petition, which will be publicised and sent to every potential investor!
