The NWTRC proposal will extend the range down the Northern California coastline into Mendocino County. The U.S. Navy will be using live ordinance, long range sonar and has permission to incidentally kill marine life. It will affect all of us living on the coast as well as endangered species that live in our coastal region.For more information, check out Agriculture Defense Coalition.
