Another critically endangered North Atlantic right whale has been found dead, this time off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Due to the advanced state of decomposition and limited photos, the exact cause of death was indeterminate, MARS said.

The latest death yet again renewed calls from nonprofit Oceana for more action to prevent right whaled deaths.

“The North Atlantic right whale carcasses are adding up, and possible extinction is getting closer,” Oceana Campaign Director Gib Brogan said. “The last population estimate released in 2023 said there are around 356 of these whales left on Earth, and we’ve watched many whales wash up on our shores since then. Each death is a devastating blow to their recovery.”

Abnormal behaviors in dolphins, orcas, belugas and other cetaceans in captivity have been documented countless times- from extreme cases of jumping out of their tanks, to banging their heads against walls or gates, to floating lethargically for extended periods of time. These are just a few of many reasons why they do not belong in aquariums and marine parks. We strive to expose the issues these animals face in the captive trade, and to advocate for an end to this exploitation.

It’s not education, and it’s not conservation. It’s exploitation in the name of profit.
Please don’t buy a ticket to ANY facility that has dolphins and whales in tanks for entertainment. #emptythetanks

YOU can help captive orcas, beluga whales, pilot whales, and false killer whales by text to tweeting members of congress!!

The SWIMS Act would end the future capture and breeding of these whale species by amending both the US Marine Mammal Protection Act and Animal Welfare Act to prohibit the taking, importation, exportation, and breeding of these whales.
