Dear Ms. Storey
I would begin by sending letters to congressmen in Maine, Massachusetts,
CT and RI to seek protection for these endangered animals. Letters to
the National Marine Fisheries Service would also help. The hottest issue
at present regarding these whales is ship strikes. I am doing some work
on the hearing of these whales and ship signatures but there are others
as well and every scientist is akin to a starving artist when it comes to
funding. I know of no adoption program but would steer you to contact
the Cetacean Research Unit [CRU] in MA to learn more. Unfortunately I do
not have names and addresses available . I'll send you the CRU
Director's e-mail and you may use me as a reference. It is

Good luck!
