California's Whale Protection Program Expands.

The slowing of shipping traffic through the Santa Barbara Channel – an initiative to lower death rates from ships hitting whales and also to decrease pollution – expanded to the Bay Area in 2017. A ceremony near the Port of Los Angeles on March 1 recognized the 11 companies that participated; they reduced speeds to less than 12 or 10 knots along California's coast during 140 trips in exchange for $1,000-$2,750 in compensation. The program prevented the release of 83.5 tons of nitrogen oxides and 2,630 metric tons of greenhouse gases this past year.
