What's At Stake
The Gulf of Mexico Rice’s whale can be as big as a railroad boxcar and as heavy as a typical fire truck and is the only large whale species that lives year-round in United States waters. And because of fossil fuel exploration development and other human activities, it is also the most endangered large whale species in the world. Only about 51 of these rare whales remain, and government scientists have concluded that the death of even a single reproductive-age female would jeopardize the existence of this species.
Join Earthjustice in urging the Biden administration to fully protect the endangered Gulf of Mexico Rice’s whale from extinction.
