6/15/18

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.
