NOAA needs to hear from us all …

Please help make the Right Whale Ship Strike Rule permanent!  Join me in letting NOAA know that we need them to protect right whales! 

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.

• Share the Act Right Now campaign with your friends and family- our campaign video and the petition can be found here.

Make a donation to Whale and Dolphin Conservation to support the work we do around the world.
