Save the Gulf's Great Baleen Whale!

 

brydes whaleThe Gulf of Mexico is home to a great baleen whale – the critically endangered Bryde’s whale. Today, the Gulf’s great baleen whale population includes fewer than 100 individuals. Take action now to protect the Bryde’s whale!

Last month, we asked you to sign a petition to protect these magnificent creatures – today, we have another opportunity to ensure that our voices are heard. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), has reopened the comment period for an additional 15 days. These majestic whales need protection - tell NMFS to protect the Gulf’s great baleen whales.

The 2010 BP drilling disaster hit the Bryde’s whale population hard. Estimates state that the disaster killed nearly 20% of the Bryde’s whale population in the Gulf. The survival of the remaining whales are at risk from the Gulf’s active oil and gas industry, including the use of explosive seismic airguns to explore for oil and gas, as well as strikes by ocean going ships. Take action to save the Gulf's great baleen whale!

Tell NMFS to protect this magnificent whale before it is too late!
