We are a small group of concerned citizens who are working to spread the word about how to protect North Atlantic right whales - one of the most endangered whales in the world. It has unfortunately become clear that new technology in fishing gear alone will not save North Atlantic right whales. The good news is that as consumers and as citizens we can protect these amazing creatures from harm and prevent them from becoming extinct. The power to help them is in our hands and together we truly can keep these whales safe.

Our Facts page has information on exactly what is happening to North Atlantic right whales and what we can all do to help, our Resources page has links to even more information on these whales such as audio recordings of the sounds they make and videos documenting rescues and our Action page has a list of actions you can take to help protect these whales. We are also on the following social media sites:
