Help Save the North Atlantic Right Whales from Extinction
Are you aware that less than 340 North Atlantic right whales are left on earth? Both the U.S. and Canadian governments need to enact immediate and rigorous regulations to rescue this threatened species from the brink of extinction. However, instead of instigating these essential protective measures, they're postponing action, which is simply not acceptable.
We plead with NOAA, the U.S. Coast Guard, Congress, Transport Canada, and the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Ocean to:
- Boost adherence, enforcement, and awareness of the present 10-knot speed rule in North Atlantic right whale preservation zones;
- Augment support for trials of inventive equipment (like on-demand and acoustic gadgets) for trap/pot and gillnet fisheries in the habitat and migratory routes of the North Atlantic right whale;
- Tighten and enrich transparency into cross-border collaborations and collectively driven federal initiatives to comprehensively address North Atlantic right whale conservation procedures.
Lend your voice by signing our petition to shield the precious North Atlantic right whales from escalating threats and deaths due to ensnarement and ship collisions.
