SAVED! Hawaii's False Killer Whales

False Killer Whale population listed as "Endangered"

Between 2010 and 2012, Pacific Whale Foundation gathered thousands of petition signatures and submitted public testimony to National Marine Fisheries Service, asking the agency to place the insular Hawai'i population of False Killer Whales on the Endangered Species List. 

The hard work paid off when, on November 21, 2012, the National Marine Fisheries Service announced the listing of the False Killer Whale as an Endangered Species!

National Marine Fisheries Service published a Final Rule on the species' protection, and will continue to montior the plan's progress and ensure it is meeting the goals of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of reducing mortality and serious injury of flase kille whales.

Mahalo for all of our supporters who signed the petition, and spoke up for the False Killer Whale!
