Tell NOAA: Right whales need greater protections

Fishing gear entanglement is one of the leading known causes of death for North Atlantic Right whales. When whales like Meridian get caught up in fishing lines, the modern Polysteel rope is so strong that it can cut through their bodies and even into their bones.

And over the last 10 years, the North Atlantic Right whale population has dropped to fewer than 350. To give these majestic creatures the greatest chance at survival, we need to give them the strongest protections we can. Join us in calling on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to do so.
