“A new opinion piece in The Hill is calling for extra protection for whales in the United States. Kyla Bennett, the science policy director at Public Employees for Environmental responsibility (PEER) called on the current administration to act to save the North Atlantic right whale, Bryde’s whale, and North Pacific right whale.
Each of these whale species makes the principal or only habitat in American waters. Each of the species is steadily declining and must be protected. While a new NOAA administrator hasn’t been named, Bennett encourages the new agency had to consider the plight of these whales.”
