Sierra Club's Amelia Island Right Whale Action Group is committed to increasing awareness of the severely endangered North Atlantic right whale. Because of Amelia Island’s position in the heart of the right whale calving grounds, we are poised to become ground zero in the fight to protect these magnificent animals. As the Right Whale Festival is being brought to our island, our group is ready to create cultural and educational opportunities to bring the plight of the right whale to the attention of as many people as possible and keep it there. We will also remain alert to opportunities for direct action when they arise.

Hazards

Right whales face a myriad of man-made dangers as they move through their ancient migratory routes. Many of these hazards are avoidable if we remain aware of when these whales are present. Considering that we have driven them to the brink of extinction, providing them with some easily accomplished protections is not too much to ask of ourselves.

Events

AIRWAG will be arranging right whale “happenings” throughout the year. Check back for upcoming events.

Programs

Members of our organization have begun to introduce right whales, and the perils that they face into the science curriculum of local schools
