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.

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.
