The Western Gray Whale is one of the most critically endangered whale populations on earth. Only about 120 individuals, and 25 breeding females, remain. These imperiled whales feed only in the summer and autumn, and almost exclusively near Piltun Bay in northeast Sakhalin. Unfortunately, in 2008, large Russian and international oil and gas companies' operations in the area coincided with a sharp decline in whales observed in their primary feeding area.

As a result, internationally recognized scientists from the Western Gray Whale Advisory Panel urgently warned oil and gas companies operating in the area to implement a moratorium on all industrial activities in or near the whales' main feeding area for summer and autumn of 2009. Failure to heed these scientists' warnings could be devastating for the whale population.

Gazprom, Shell, Mitsui, and Mitsubishi have already agreed to the urgent moratorium. However, Exxon, BP and Rosneft have not yet complied with the moratorium. Please join us in urging the remaining companies operating in the area to join the moratorium and to support the proposed Sakhalin Marine Federal Wildlife Reserve.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
