Help protect southern resident orcas from harmful sonar activities!

We need your help to stop a proposal that could allow serious harm to over two thirds of the entire southern resident population of endangered orcas.

A proposed rule from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) would let Naval activities in the Northwest Training and Testing area cause serious harm to up to 51 of these orcas (68% of the entire population!), putting the recovery and even survival of this population in jeopardy.   

Those sonar activities could disrupt critical natural behaviors like feeding, nursing, surfacing, migration and more – and with these orcas already fighting for their lives, this disruption could push them over the brink.

Take a stand: Tell the NMFS to reduce the danger sonar activities pose to the survival of southern resident orcas!
