The North Atlantic Right whales need strong protections

There are only about 360 North Atlantic Right whales left in existence. According to a study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, less than one whale can die every year for these critically endangered whales to avoid extinction. In the last four years alone, 34 have died -- putting the species on the fast track to oblivion.

We know what's mainly killing these whales: boating collisions and entanglements in fishing equipment. The good news is that they're within our control to change. The bad news is that we're racing against the clock -- and we're losing.

The North Atlantic Right whales need help soon if they're to avoid extinction. Tell President Biden that they need the strongest possible protections now.
