SUBMIT YOUR COMMENT TO NOAA to tell the government why making the ship strike rule permanent is important to you. PLease submit your comment before 11:59 EST on August 6th.

NOAA has some interesting parameters pertaining to how they recognize and calculate public comments. While you will need to submit your comment in your own voice/words to ensure that your voice is heard always remember to SEAL YOUR COMMENTS TO NOAA WITH A K.I.S.S.

 CARE TO DO MORE…

• Contact your Senators and let them know the Federal Ship Speed Reduction Rule to protect North Atlantic right whales is important and should not expire. Find contact information for your elected officials here.
