Today, there are only about 400 North Atlantic right whales left in the ocean and less than a quarter of them are breeding females.
In just the last two years, almost 30 of these endangered whales are known to have been killed because they have become entangled in fishing gear or have been struck by vessels.
Submit your comment to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration asking them to develop strong and effective regulations to protect North Atlantic right whales from deadly entanglements in fishing gear.
