Shell's drilling effort last year demonstrated one thing with vivid clarity -- even the largest, most profitable oil company in the world cannot mobilize and operate safely in the Arctic Ocean. Big Oil's track record speaks for itself and has no business drilling in the Arctic Ocean.
ZSL and Project Seahorse are working with the communities and local government units to provide emergency support in the form of packs containing food, clean water, and basic medicines.
