Right Whale

Help Save North Atlantic Right Whales!

By the time hunting was banned in 1935, North Atlantic right whales had long been on the brink of extinction. Still to this day, their future remains in jeopardy.

These huge mammals – an adult can weigh 70 tons – are slow moving and often swim close to the surface. As a result, collisions with ships kill or maim whales each year. Even if the whale doesn't die on impact, it often dies from loss of blood within hours— especially if a segment of the tail is severed or a vital organ gets punctured.

Only around 500 North Atlantic right whales exist. They are so critically endangered that the loss of even one female could spell the difference between survival and extinction.

But with your help, there is hope. Defenders is playing a key lead role in giving North Atlantic right whales a fighting chance.
