Right Whales Act Introduced As Another Possible Carcass Is Discovered
There is new legislation to protect the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whales.
Two bills were introduced in the Senate and U.S. House last week by a group that includes 9th District Congressman William Keating.
The” Save Right Whales Act” establishes a new grant program to fund collaborative projects between states, non-governmental organizations and members of the fishing and shipping industries to reduce the impacts of human activities on the endangered species.
Authorities are now investigating a possible Right Whale death off the coast of Virginia, which would be the second documented death this year.
