Tell Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo: Right whales don't have time to lose

Every time a critically endangered North Atlantic Right whale dies, the species slips closer to extinction.

Frequently, these whales die when they become entangled in fishing lines that stretch from the surface down to the ocean floor. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently announced rules designed to protect these whales from entanglements, but they won't do enough to stop the species' steep decline -- they would only delay extinction.

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo oversees NOAA -- tell her that the Right whales need stronger protections to avoid extinction.
