Coast Guard, NOAA remind mariners to slow down for right whalesWILMINGTON, N.C. — The Coast Guard advises large vessel operators that Operation Right Speed is in effect during the annual right whale migration in the mid-Atlantic waters from Nov. 1 to April 30.

Coast Guard Sector North Carolina personnel caution boaters regulations require vessels 65-feet or greater to operate at speeds 10 knots or less in designated right whale migration routes and calving grounds.

The designated areas can be found at the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration site at

The Coast Guard is working closely with NOAA with a shared goal of conserving and rehabilitating the whale’s population.

As an ocean steward and the federal government’s primary at-sea enforcement agency, the Coast Guard is responsible for conserving the endangered North Atlantic right whale. The whales are among the most depleted of all large whales worldwide with the global population being approximately 300-400.

Coast Guard efforts are largely focused on educational measures to ensure mariners are aware of these areas, followed by warnings. Civil or criminal penalties may be issued to those who violate speed restrictions in the seasonal management areas where right whales are likely to be found.

Historical records indicate an average of two reported deaths or serious injuries to right whales occur due to ship strikes each year, but it is likely unreported incidents occur.

To report a suspected violation in the seasonal management areas, call the national hotline at 800-853-1964.

The North Atlantic right whale is protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973 and the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.

Thank you for sending your letter to the Korean Prime Minister. With this small act you have contributed to a campaign that will not only help save the lives of numerous individual whales but will help protect a whole population already at risk. Preventing scientific whaling by the Republic of Korea will send a strong message to the world – including whaling countries: Japan, Iceland and Norway – that commercial whaling in the 21st Century is not acceptable....And yes, stop killing everything in the animal kingdom for food! Thanks Nancy.

Signed and shared. Excuse me for insisting but, causes should be supported by letters. Letters not only to govts that ignore our compassionate petitions but to their permanent mission at the UN's and other UN's offices related to animals and environment and the countries that are their business partners. If whales are at a risk of extinction, then, letters (not petitions, please) sent to United Animal Nations International could help. Groups like Ifaw and all those extraordinary institutions could consult with Strasbourg also. Theme about Spain bull fiestas will visit Strasbourg next July, an spanish volunteer will be presenting the cause and in the meantime, she is gathering signatures around the world. --------- SEND LETTERS! LETTERS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOVE this post Nancy thanks so very much noted signed tweeted shared on fb and g+ also thanks to Giana for the added info it was great to read and Myraida while i do agree that letters are more helpful I also feel that petitions with alot of signatures also carry alot of weight. Petitions have helped us gain mny victories on care2 but a letter does go a little further a handwritten letter emails help as well but letters emails and petitions in combo could work even better i suggest doing all signing petitions sending emails and mailing a letter Thanks Nancy for posting

Under no circumstances should South Korea be allowed to hunt (these) beautiful and endangered whales. Unacceptable! Scientific research is but a pretext for commercial hunting, and commercial whaling is illegal. The IWC must do something about such loopholes in the law in order to stop them from being exploited. How can whales be properly protected, as they fully deserve, in such a situation? I am so against whaling.

Ray S, yes, we should also stop slaughtering sheep and cows for food. But the reason we especially object to whaling, is that you can not humanely kill a whale, and they are endangered as well.
