Protect Beluga Whales

Tell the Bush Administration to Protect the Last 300 Beluga Whales in Alaska's Cook Inlet!


There are only 300 beluga whales left in Alaska's Cook Inlet -- a 77 percent decline from the 1,300 whales that thrived there in the early 1980s. Now that these whales are on the brink of extinction, the National Marine Fisheries Service is finally proposing to protect them as an endangered species. But industry groups -- backed by all three members of Alaska's congressional delegation -- are opposed to the whale's protection.

Send your Official Citizen Comment urging the Bush Administration to give these whales a fighting chance by protecting them as endangered and designating their critical habitat.

You can do that online, through the NRDC Action Fund, at:

I am Falon Snyder and I am doing a project in my oceanography class about endangered Beluga Whales. I think that the rights of the whales should be protected o rebuild the population of this incredible animal. It is shame that us as a nation take advantages of the small things that really do make a difference.

Great job Falon. We need more people doing projects to inform the rest of the world how dangerously close we are to losing these amazing creatures forever.
Thanks
