USA: Right off the coast of California, whales are drowning. Yet the Federal Agency For Protecting Whales, Refuses To Shut Down the Driftnet Industry.

Mark,

Right off the coast of California, whales are drowning.

According to the government’s own data, one in four whales entangled in fishery gear is killed or seriously injured. Entangled whales can die slow and painful deaths.

And yet, the federal agency mandated to protect these animals backed off of common-sense regulations and refuses to close down the deadly driftnet fishery.

How deadly? The California driftnet fishery kills more whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals than all other observed West Coast fisheries – combined!

Please make a generous donation of $50 or more today so together we can fight the good fight to protect whales, sharks, and sea turtles from the deadly driftnet fishery.

Thanks,

Peter Fugazzotto, Strategic Programs Director
Turtle Island Restoration Network
