Protect Northwest Orcas petition!

Petition Background

The critically endangered population of Pacific Northwest orcas has been reduced to only 84 individuals. Now, they face a new threat from anti-environmental groups seeking to strip away their Endangered Species Act protections.

Tell the National Marine Fisheries Service that this unique population deserves full protection under the law.

These unique marine mammals have been decimated by the decline of salmon—their primary prey—and by toxic pollution and habitat degradation from shipping, sonar and other human activities. They need more, not less, protection.

Please voice your support for continuing vital protections for the Pacific Northwest's irreplaceable killer whales.
If you care about the fate of the Southern Resident Orcas, please sign the petition below;
