BREAKING: Only around 330 North Atlantic right whales remain. This is a nearly 10 per cent population decrease in the past year.
Since 2017, at least 34 North Atlantic right whales have died – 21 of them in busy Canadian waters. And in early 2021, a critically endangered North Atlantic right whale calf was found dead due to a fatal vessel strike.
Without aggressive action now, this could be the first large whale species to go extinct in the Atlantic Ocean in centuries.
Entanglements in fishing gear and collisions with vessels are the leading causes of death – both of which are preventable.
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.
