Whales Alive Update

Whales Alive staff are working to fully establish the Hawai'ian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary, which requires approval by Hawai'ian Governor Ben Cayetano before it takes effect in state waters. The sanctuary will give whale advocates the opportunity to interact directly with federal representatives at a local level to shape policy that affects the whales regardless ofpotential changes in the federal Endangered Species Act. The population of the Northern Pacific Humpback Whale, on the federal Endangered Species List since 1971, is still severely depleted and its habitat threatened.
