Urge NOAA to Protect North Atlantic Right Whales Before Feb. 27!


We, the undersigned, are concerned about the survival of the North Atlantic right whale. The American Pilots Association’s proposed changes to the ship strike rule will put these whales back in the way of deadly ship strikes. While your agency recently extended the ship strike rule, we know that our fight is not over.

Please dismiss the Pilots Association’s request to remove the restrictions of the ship strike rule from all federally maintained dredged entrance channels and pilot boarding areas between New York and Florida.

I stand with organizations such as the Whale and Dolphin Conservation in urging NOAA Fisheries to ensure that the fewer than 500 remaining North Atlantic right whales have a safe area to live.

http://www.takepart.com/article/2012/11/20/seaworld-appeals-ruling-trainers-death-eyewitness-interviews-are-released?cmpid=tp-internal-taboola

This week, attorneys for SeaWorld Florida and the Obama administration are completing briefs for a showdown in U.S. federal court, where SeaWorld will try to overturn a lower-court ruling against the park in the February 24, 2010 death of trainer Dawn Brancheau. Now, through the Freedom of Information Act, TakePart has obtained eyewitness interviews conducted by the Orange County Sheriff’s office on or around that fateful day.

The federal judges hearing SeaWorld’s appeal should also listen to these tapes: They portray a horrific afternoon of violence and terror as the 12,000-pound killer whale Tilikum grabbed his trainer, pulled her underwater, scalped, rammed and dismembered her, and then refused to relinquish her body....

Dolphin Bites Child’s Hand at SeaWorld

A dolphin at a SeaWorld petting pool has bitten a young child, prompting an internal investigation by the company and a formal complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Agriculture by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It was the second such incident reported at a SeaWorld park in just over two years.

THIS IS SO INSPIRING!

Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California recently filmed and edited this 5 minute video taken with a drone. It shows thousands of dolphins, three gray whales migrating off the coast of San Clemente, and a humpback whale snuggling with her calf in Maui.

Wow TGT,
That is an amazing article! We know so little about what goes on in the ocean!
I wish all the other sea life was as good at avoiding gill nets!
Thanks!

"For months, SeaWorld seemed to hope a surge of bad press and protests surrounding a controversial documentary would fade away.

Then a wave of high-profile entertainers canceled appearances at the company’s marine parks late last year and SeaWorld decided it couldn’t stay silent about “Blackfish” any longer.

The company launched an aggressive media campaign of persistent anti-”Blackfish” social media posts, polished videos featuring SeaWorld employees and full-page ads in some of the nation’s largest newspapers.

But what message is SeaWorld projecting? Here are some key takeaways from SeaWorld’s anti-”Blackfish” offensive."

A state lawmaker has proposed legislation that would prohibit SeaWorld from using orcas in its San Diego shows, saying he is being driven to act by revelations in the disputed documentary “Blackfish.”
