Please, find below the links for a new
letter on the delisting of humpback whales and the development of the Enbridge Northern Gateway megapipeline project in British Columbia, Canada, recently published in
Science last July.
advocate that the decision to downlist humpback whales in British Columbia should account for threats
posed by oil pipelines and associated tankers. The downlisting
from ‘Threatened’ status to a species of ‘Special Concern’ was significant because
the whales’ critical habitat, which overlaps proposed oil tanker routes, does
not have to be protected under the revised status.
