This action is no longer available.

On Nov. 2, 2018, the federal government announced that it would not be issuing an emergency order to protect endangered Southern Resident killer whales, refusing to implement a recommendation from the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

Ecojustice issued the following statement in response:

Thank you for taking action to protect the Southern Residents. Together with its partners, Ecojustice remains committed to using the power of the law to defend this population of whales, and species at risk across Canada.
