Protect North Atlantic Right Whales from Deadly Entanglements

North Atlantic right whales could be extinct in the wild by 2040 -- and the two leading reasons for human-caused North Atlantic right whale deaths are ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear.

The US government has lowered permitted vessel speeds to reduce ship strikes. But to save these whales we have to prevent deadly fishing entanglements too.

Your signature today will help convince the National Marine Fisheries Service to take immediate action to reduce fishing gear entanglements by reducing the allowed break-limit on fishing gear. That way, North Atlantic right whales can better free themselves from potentially fatal entanglements.

These rare whales are on a collision course with extinction. Please sign our petition to the National Marine Fisheries Service now.
