USA: The Secret Slaughter – End The Nets.



end the nets

Dear Mark,

This is truly messed up. Turtle Island just obtained secret, graphic photos of dolphins, sharks and sea turtles and other animals killed by the California driftnet fishery. These disturbing images are heartbreaking. But seeing them has motivated me to fight even harder to shut down the catastrophic California driftnet fishery for swordfish. We’ve got a chance right now to shut this fishery down and that’s why I need your help!

Please make a tax-deductible donation of just $10 or more to help stop this fishery forever. We need to raise $5,000 by Tuesday May 24 to drive this campaign forward, and I hope that you can help. Remember why the killer California driftnet fishery needs to be phased out:

Turtle Island has obtained dozens of photos of the true cost of this fishery: hundreds of dead wild dolphins, whales, sharks, sea turtles and more

More than 885 wild dolphins and whales in the last decade died through drowning and injury in the fishery

Driftnet gear is so destructive that it is banned by the United Nations in international ocean waters

California taxpayers are paying up to $2.7 million per year to prop up this fishery

More sustainable alternative fishing methods exist, and will cut bycatch by 80%

If you have given, thank you so much. If you haven’t donated yet, please take the next step to save the marine mammals you care about — your gift of just $10 or more will make a real difference in Turtle Island’s fight to protect sea turtles, whales, dolphins and other species today. We need your help to stop the California driftnet fishery for good, and end this catastrophe for marine life. For the oceans,

Todd Steiner,

Director  – Turtle Island Restoration Network
