Canada – Roseway Basin area to be avoided to protect right whales

Transport Canada has issued a news release stating that the recommended seasonal "Area to be Avoided" (ATBA) is now in effect in the Roseway Basin, off Nova Scotia's Cape Sable Island.  The ATBA is intended to reduce the risk that passing ships will strike the endangered North Atlantic right whales.  The ATBA will remain in effect until December 31.
