Right Whales in Court

Less than 24 hours before the start of the North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium annual meeting, to be held here at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, notice has been sent out that a joint lawsuit has been filed against National Marine Fisheries Service. Defenders of Wildlife, Humane Society of America, and Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society have jointly sued ” to hold the National Marine Fisheries Service accountable for continuing to allow four federal fisheries to injure and kill endangered whales, including the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale.”

The blog post from the Defenders of Wildlife can be seen here.
