Dear President Biden,

Cashes Ledge is a hotspot for whales, dolphins and more, and it needs new protections.
In your America the Beautiful plan, you challenged “all of us as Americans to join together in pursuit of a goal of conserving at least 30 percent of our lands and waters by 2030.”
In the center of the Gulf of Maine, Cashes Ledge is just the place. Within it there are deep, healthy kelp forests. The area is a hotspot for marine life, including threatened and endangered species. It’s one of the last, best places to find Atlantic cod in the Gulf.
Please permanently protect this amazing place, so future generations can marvel at the wonders of nature off our shores.
