Provide safer waterways for whales and marine species!
Despite significant efforts by the Government of Canada to reduce the injury and death of whales due to collisions with commercial ships and other vessels, whales continue to be killed in Canadian waters. Speed restrictions and shipping lanes established in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, for example, have helped, but are not enough.Firma la petizioneFirma la petizione
Canada needs to commit to further actions on all three coasts to reduce incidental mortality of whales due to shipping. This should include further refining of speed restrictions based on the latest science, developing alert systems to notify ships of whales in real time, and working with the shipping industry to develop seasonal changes to shipping lanes that avoid whales.
