Why:

Proceeds from the November edition of the monthly drum & bass Dream will benefit The International Fund for Animal Welfare and the right whale. With only 350 right whales remaining, the right whale is poised to follow the fate of the baiji—a white dolphin found off the coast of eastern China, and the first large aquatic mammal driven to virtual extinction since hunting and overfishing killed off the Caribbean monk seal in the 1950s—as legislation that could save the right whale languishes with the Administration. As the primary cause of mortality is vessel strikes, the National Marine Fisheries Service has proposed a Ship Strike Rule, calling for reductions in boat speed limits to 10 knots–an impact of $116 million a year, less than four-hundredths of one percent of the $300 billion East Coast shipping trade. Top scientists all concur that this rule must be enacted in order to save the species. The final rule was expected to be issued in June 2007, yet it remains held by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget—which has offered no public explanation. Lawmakers—including Senator John Kerry, Senator Olympia Snowe, and Senator Edward Kennedy—are joining in the effort to push the Ship Strike Rule forward. Tell your Congressman what you think, get more information at http://www.ifaw.org, and come out to support the cause on Nov. 16.
