Tell National Marine Fisheries Service that you DO NOT support backpeddaling!

NMFS's new plan for Hawaii-based shallow-set longline fishery would nearly triple the number of loggerhead sea turtles caught each year. We must act now to prevent their plan from taking effect. They are accepting comments online and by mail through Monday, May 18, 2009.

Please hurry to their website before they reverse the progress that has been made in recent years towards saving the sea turtle population.


A full description of the proposed fishery management plan amendment is available online as well.
