URGENT UPDATE: A critically endangered North Atlantic right whale calf has been found dead due to two fatal vessel strikes. Add your name now to call for urgent North Atlantic right whale protections.
Critically endangered North Atlantic right whales are on the verge of extinction, and 7% of the population died in just the past three years. Only around 400 North Atlantic right whales remain. Without aggressive action now, this could be the first large whale to go extinct in the Atlantic Ocean in centuries.
Collisions with vessels and entanglements in fishing gear are the leading causes of death – both of which are preventable.
We’re calling on the U.S. and Canadian governments to take urgent action to protect North Atlantic right whales from collisions with vessels and entanglements in fishing gear.
Tell your federal government officials to take immediate action to protect North Atlantic right whales from extinction. Speak up now, before these iconic whales are gone forever.
