Whale Tales and Whale Facts: Educational Forum on Protecting Whales in NY


Date: 4 April 2023

Time: 12:00 EST

Since 2016 we have witnessed an increase in whale strandings and whale deaths off the coast of America’s shores. These endangered species are under threat from several sources, including ship strikes, fishing gear, plastic pollution, and climate change. Unfortunately, misinformation about whale deaths and an association with offshore wind development has led to concerns about transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy. These local wind projects are crucial to combat climate change, which is not only a threat to whales but a threat to marine mammals, fisheries, and our communities.
