The Great Whale Conservancy protects the world's great whales and their habitat.
The GWC sincerely appreciates the financial assistance our supporters have provided in the past year, as we have worked to create an alternate shipping lane off the coat of California to provide mroe separation between the commercial shipping industry and the largest remaining subpopulation of Blue Whales. Our year-end report shows that it was a very productive twelve months.
The U.S. Navy plans to increase sonar testing over the next five years, even as research it funded reveals worrying signs that the loud underwater noise could disturb whales and dolphins.
Endangered blue whales and other Great Whales are being killed by collisions with ships while feeding along the California coast. Help us move the shipping lanes!
