The New Jersey DEP Has Approved Millions of Dollars to Protect Whales.

Millions of dollars are being spent by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to safeguard whales.

At least nine whales have washed up on shore since December.
Authorities claim there is no proof that activities tied to offshore wind farms are to blame for whale deaths, but they do believe that climate change, notably increasing water temperatures, may have a role.

Two wind energy businesses have pledged an additional $26 million for research and ecological monitoring, and the DEP has allowed $8.5 million to ensure that offshore development is safe for whales.
