Saddest news.

It’s unimaginable, but we’ve just lost another endangered right whale.

This is the 8th whale found dead in only the last few weeks. That’s 1% of the entire estimated population - gone.

We need to find and demand solutions to save the remaining few. Time is critical and time is running out.

Their only hope rests with you and me.

Come run with Sierra Club Canada Foundation and fundraise for the Planet!

Few things are as spectacular and awe-inducing as a breaching humpback whale.

The sheer enormity of their body, with such strength and grace – blasting out of the water, seeming to defy the laws of gravity even just for a moment – is enough to take your breath away. It’s acrobatics and ballet on the largest scale, with a splash down that is out of this world!

It’s what they do, and it is what they have done for millennia.
