I'm devastated to report that the licence for oil and gas drilling has been approved in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and there’s not one thing whales can do to stop it.
We're not giving up and neither are they.
At this very moment – mile by mile, heading north – they’re coming back.
Over the next few weeks, blue whales will be making their way back to Canadian waters.
It’s a brave and often perilous journey. But they do it because their ancient DNA tells them to come north, as they have for millennia.
While some of these whales have been south this winter, you and I have been working to keep their northern waters safe.
