Support representatives who protect wildlife
Critically endangered North Atlantic right whales can breathe a little easier today, thanks to the defeat of a provision that could have driven them to extinction.
The two greatest threats to the whale’s survival are ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear. The defeated amendment would have prohibited NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) from using proven strategies to help reduce these risks to the North Atlantic right whale.
Your member of the U.S. House of Representatives voted to defeat this dangerous provision – please take a moment to thank them for protecting endangered right whales!
