Dear Minister,

As a Canadian, I believe that the well-being of marine life is the concern of every global citizen. Please reconsider Shell’s work off the coast of South Africa. There must be a more sustainable way.

I object to the Shell seismic survey for the health of all.

South Africa is one of few countries globally, that has so far escaped the exploitation and environmental destruction resulting from oil, gas and or other petrol products exploration.
Therefore, along with the people of South Africa, the SA government should show responsible stewardship of South Africa's environment and guard our country's natural resources for the current generations and generations to come.
No seismic blasting the Western Cape Coast or any coast lines and or any area within the borders of the Republic of South Africa!
Thank you.

The marine life can not be fixed once damaged and takes years to be restored. Why damage what we require for survival.

Why would you even consider damaging sealife so severely for oil? There is so much about marine life that we don't know yet. Why would you be so selfish to kill for some easy money? What is worth more to you, money or the planet we live on?

I can already tell you, if Shell does this and it gets publicly known, Shell will be mostly boycotted. Worldwide. There won't be a whole lot of money to gain. And if Shell somehow manages to hide this all, do you really think they will stop? No. Others might even jump onto this train. And it's nature that suffers once again because people want money.

This is not OK - Our beautiful coastlines and wildlife will be destroyed. This should never be allowed. Our Children may be swimming in oil before we know it.

This cannot be allowed. We need to protect our oceans. We cannot allow them to be destroyed for profit.
