News Release Eyak Preservation Council May 18, 2105 Giant Flotilla Navy Protest in CordovaSaturday, May 16th 2015 over 100 boats and hundreds of onlookers joined in a peaceful protest to demonstrate against the Navy's planned training activities in the Gulf of Alaska scheduled to start this June.
Starting June 15th, the Navy wants to conduct a training exercise called ‘Northern Edge’ in the Gulf of Alaska, very close to the South Central Alaskan coastline. This combined training exercise uses dangerous sonar and weapons in what the Navy calls ‘realistic’ war games. The training area overlaps with State Marine Protected areas, NOAA Fisheries Protected areas and include critical and Essential Fish Habitat.
These trainings are planned to take place during the most prolific breeding and migratory periods of the marine supported life in the region (salmon, whales, birds and more) as they make their way towards Prince William Sound and beyond.
