W2O is launching a new initiative: PODs!

Join our Family! Sign up to attend a POD or host your own!  If you would like to host a POD all you need to do is invite a bunch of friends to a cozy conversation location and guide a casual discussion about the Right Whale. Locations can range from your home, to a cafe, to a local library - whatever inspires you. We will provide toolkits for the hosts and pre-POD info for your guests.

To RSVP to a POD, or host your own, please contact us at:
After Protect Our Coasts... 
How can you help?

The Protect our Coasts event at the New England Aquarium last month was a phenomenal success. Guests learned what they can do to prevent seismic testing a nd offshore oil and gas development in the Atlantic Ocean.

The proposal to open up our coasts to oil and gas exploration threatens us all, no matter where we live. We depend on the ocean for a healthy economy, as a vital food source and even for the air we breathe. We encourage you to sign up for email alerts so that when the Trump Administration issues its proposed oil and gas development plan (which is expected at any time), kicking off a 90 day public comment period, you can lend your voice to  Protect Our Coasts .
