We're protecting sea turtles from longlines

The National Marine Fisheries Service failed to properly analyze the Hawai‘i-based swordfish longline fishery’s impacts on the endangered loggerhead sea turtles it kills and injures before permitting an expansion of that fishery in 2012, a federal court has ruled.

Taking care of the environment makes a difference

“Marine debris, like plastic, is an overwhelming global issue...but each piece that gets picked up makes a difference.”

Consider the Kemp's ridley

“The Kemp’s ridley is the world’s most endangered, and most vulnerable sea turtle species. We need to protect their nesting beaches for them now before we lose these incredible creatures forever.”
