Cashes Ledge, off the shore of New England, is an underwater treasure. This wild and special place is home to a diversity of wildlife and the largest and deepest continuous kelp forest in offshore waters off the eastern United States.
And emerging research has discovered that it’s also a critical winter home for the Atlantic Puffin, which is at risk of extinction.
But Cashes Ledge is at risk: Rising temperatures, increasing pollution, and overfishing have damaged the ecosystem. Take action: Urge President Biden to designate Cashes Ledge a national marine monument.
