Help Us Save the Highly Endangered Gulf of Mexico Whale

There are fewer than 50 Gulf of Mexico whales left in the world, and virtually all of them live in the waters of a single submarine canyon off the coast of the Florida panhandle.

At night, Gulf of Mexico whales relax near the surface of the water, where they are being seriously injured and even killed after being struck by vessels. Make no mistake: If this continues, the species will be driven to extinction.

The federal government is legally required under the Endangered Species Act and the Marine Mammal Protection Act to take the necessary actions to save the Gulf of Mexico whale — but right now, they’re falling short.

Tell the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): The fate of the critically endangered Gulf of Mexico whale depends on you — please take immediate action to safeguard these endangered whales from future vessel collisions.
