Petition: Prevent the Extinction of the North Atlantic Right Whale

Update. It’s devastating news. The 2018 winter calving season for these critically endangered whales just ended without a single newborn calf being spotted off the southeast U.S. coast.

The North Atlantic right whale is under threat of extinction. Only 450 still exist, and of these only about a hundred are breeding females.

2017 was a particularly terrible year for these endangered marine mammals: 17 have been found dead, many as a result of collisions with vessels or entanglement with fishing gear. In 2018, reseaearchers haven’t spotted a single newborn all breeding season.
