Endangered North Atlantic right whales face an ocean of trouble.
Driven to the brink of extinction by whaling, fewer than 500 remain. Now alarming new research shows their numbers may be decreasing again – just as dangerous seismic blasting could begin as early as this summer!
This is your chance to DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT for these endangered whales before they disappear from our oceans forever.
Donate now to help reach our $25,000 goal before Friday at midnight – Your generous contribution to the Wavemaker Matching Gift Tide Pool will help double the impact by inspiring others to donate >>
We all need encouragement, and that's what the Tide Pool is about: encouraging new ocean advocates to take a stand. Every dollar you give will be put toward future Wavemaker campaigns and will be matched by fellow supporters like yourself. And, friend, endangered whales need leaders like you right now.
Many scientists fear seismic airgun blasting could be the tipping point, dooming North Atlantic right whales to extinction. Blasting will continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for weeks on end to locate oil and gas below the seafloor. The result? Harm to whales.
That's why we must win – the future of these whales is at risk.
Together, we helped prevent offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean off the U.S. East Coast! Think about that – our grassroots opposition overcame the money-flush destructive desires of Big Oil. That's the kind of progress for our oceans your dedicated support wins.
But this one victory isn't enough – not by a long shot. We need your help to stop seismic blasting before endangered whales suffer the consequences.
Make a donation toward our $25,000 Tide Pool goal now and your gift will support Oceana's proven campaigns and inspire others to do the same >>
This is a great chance to be an ocean leader.  I hope you'll be able to do so.
