Our eminent Director, Dr Peter Evans is one of 350 cetacean scientists from more than 40 countries who has signed an open letter calling for immediate global action to prevent the very real crisis looming in our oceans.

For others the timescale may be longer but without prompt action it will be too late for them too. To download the letter, please click the title of the document below.
