Save the Whales

Posted under news

There’s actually a very simple yet critical way to save the whales. The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies is the only east coast U.S. organization that is federally permitted to disentangle whales from fishing gear. Yet next year, their funding will be so drastically cut as to jeopardize the whole program. Congress’ inability to get a budget passed is at the root of this, though the belief is that funding will be included in a final budget.

Meanwhile, PCCS continues to go out and disentangle whales on a scarily frequent basis, reinforcing just how critical this program is. A recent disentanglement press release talks about this loss of funding. There is also a story on boston.com about this topic.

Donate to PCCS and help keep the disentanglement team able to keep saving whales. It’s easy, it’s tangible, and it’s critically necessary.
