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.

There are so many scientific reports globally that proves how dangerous this is, toward the invaluable underground water supply and all of the living sentients depending on it.

If this is not managed EXTREMELY WELL it will cause the deaths of marine life, people etc. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS AND NOT JUST THE MONEY!!!! We can get money somewhere else but we can NEVER REPLACE OUR WATER !!!

LOOK AT THE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN DOCUMENTARIES AND PAPERS ABOUT THIS

The impact on marine life will be unmeasurable damage.
E.g. whales and dolphins haring will be damaged and affect their communications by sounds.
Fish will be killed. The communities that goed from the coastline will be affected if theor food source are killed.

I feel like they are not thinking about the future outcome of how this will affect the environment, the living creatures and the habitats of those creatures.

How can that stupid person say on the news that the shell blasts is safe and will do no harm to our oceans? This ocean does not belong to shell or our government and we ALL have a say as to what happens to OUR oceans. The past seven years the fishing industry has gone from bad to worse! And we are being told no harm to our oceans as if we are stupid uneducated people. You will not succeed!

We need to stop drilling for oil and gas and replace energy generation with renewable sources

Why does South Africa not appoint persons who can actually finish the wind turbine project in the Western Cape which will ensure so much sustainable electricity already.
We have incompetent persons running this project pocketing millions, year in and year out, with no sight for completion.
Start focusing and finishing on one project which will provide enough for our country and leave our marine world alone!
