Reducing the Threat of Ship Strikes to Whales

Ships and whales–we need both! We talk with Michael Carver, Deputy Superintendent of Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, to learn about West Coast ship strikes to whales and what national marine sanctuaries are doing to help solve this problem. Find out how a new whale spotter app is engaging mariners to help!

Everyday Action: Go out on whale watching tours to view and learn about these magnificent creatures and enjoy your national marine sanctuary. Report injured, entangled and ship struck whale concerns to the 24-hour hotline: 877-SOS-WHALE.
