Less than 100 of these whales remain in the wild

A Speed Limit on Boats Could Save Rice’s Whales From Extinction

The future is uncertain for the Gulf of Mexico whale, also known as Rice’s whale. Less than 100 remain in the wild, making these beautiful marine mammals one of the most endangered whales in the world. But a simple policy change could have a huge impact on this species, and potentially save the sweet whales from extinction!

Sign now to demand NOAA implement a speed limit to protect whales!

Multiple Rice’s whales have been found washed ashore, with autopsies confirming scientists’ worst fears: that the animals died from being hit by a boat or sea vessel. NOAA must act to protect these beautiful creatures before it is too late. Implement a vessel speed limit in the Rice’s whale habitat! Sign the petition now if you agree!
