BREAKING: Save Endangered Blue Whale Currently Trapped in Fishing Net (Petition)

Animal Petitions.org
June 28, 2016


A blue whale is currently fighting for it's life in a fishing net, prompting a massive rescue effort.

The endangered whale is towing about 200 feet of net and is slowly dying.

Demand an immediate ban on fishing nets in the vicinity of all blue whale habitat and a full effort to rescue this innocent creature.

A 70-80 foot blue whale was spotted off the coast of California, entangled in crab lines and dragging several buoys.
Rescue efforts by the Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have so far proven unsuccessful.

While the whale can swim for long distances while entangled, it is slowly dying and must be rescued soon.

NOAA has confirmed 22 other cases of fishing line entanglement off the coast of California, Oregon and Washington recently.
In the majority of cases, rescue efforts were unsuccessful.

Please sign at the link below and demand an immediate ban on fishing nets in this coastal area and a full scale effort to save this magnificent mammal.
