Earlier this year a critically endangered North Atlantic right whale calf was found dead due to a fatal vessel strike. 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 the population has decreased nearly 10% in the past year. Only around 330 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.
This action can only be completed by U.S. and Canadian residents with an address recognized by the database provided by Congress or Parliament respectively.
