URGENT: Highly endangered North Atlantic right whales are on the verge of extinction, and seven per cent of the population died in just the past three years. Only around 400 right whales remain. Without aggressive action now, this could be the first large whale to go extinct in the Atlantic Ocean in centuries.
Entanglements in fishing gear and collisions with ships are the leading causes of death – both of which are preventable.
The Canadian and U.S. governments must stand united in efforts to protect North Atlantic right whales from collisions with ships 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.
