Save North Atlantic right whales from extinction

There are only about 400 North Atlantic right whales left in the world, and less than a quarter of them are breeding females.

In just the last two years, at least 26 of these whales have been killed, largely because they have become entangled in fishing gear or been struck by vessels.

Tell your elected representatives to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in its efforts to develop strong and effective regulations to protect the North Atlantic right whale from deadly fishing gear entanglements and vessel strikes.
