Whales, Dolphins, and Boats

So I’ve been seeing a lot of articles on marine animal/boat collisions and I wanted to jump in on that.

Boats cause horrific damage to large sea mammals and can often lead to death. I’ve mentioned about how we lost a few of the very rare North Atlantic Right Whales due to (most likely) boat collisions.

Now you may ask – we can’t just halt boats from shipping, fishing, and other uses, right? Correct. But we can regulate them. Recent regulations have caused collision with animals to drop drastically. So this is an important project to get behind!
