Causes - Whale & Dolphin Conservation 3

 
Issue 

Right whales have been hunted to the brink of extinction. Despite over 40 years of federal protection, North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) have not recovered. Because they share their coastal water homes with us, human-caused impacts continue to pose daunting obstacles to the species' survival. Their population is now so small that every death is cause for serious alarm.  

Response

Whale & Dolphin Conservation is working to save the North Atlantic Right Whale from extinction by lobbying to increase their federally designated Critical Habitat, helping to implement new fishing standards that minimize entanglement and improving shipping regulations to reduce the number of vessel strikes.
