With barely 400 North Atlantic right whales left on earth, we must do everything we can to save the species from extinction. Federal regulators at NOAA want to hear from you as they consider proposals to reduce the risk of whales getting entangled in deadly fishing gear. Let them know that the best short-term solution would be to establish a new protected area south of Nantucket, where right whales feed and socialize for several months of the year. Around 100 whales, one-quarter of the current population were spotted there on a single day last year. We can protect right whales in this important area by removing fishing gear when whales are there.
