Help Save Blue Whales From Dangerous Ship Strikes!

Every year, endangered blue whales are being needlessly struck and killed by commercial ships off the coast of California. There's a simple, life-saving solution: opening up Navy waters to commercial shipping traffic. So far the Navy has refused. That's why NRDC, the Great Whale Conservancy and a coalition of groups are asking President Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, to take the lead. Tell the Obama Administration to protect some of our planet’s last blue whales by directing the Navy to open its waters!
