All marine mammals are protected in the United States by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. There are also international laws and treaties that protect marine mammals. Unfortunately, many marine mammals are considered endangered species and there are still threats to most of their populations, such as illegal hunting, pollution, climate change, and habitat loss. Learn more about these issues and tell others, including lawmakers, how you feel about them. Together, we can solve or prevent many of the problems our ocean friends face.
