Tell the government to protect sea turtles from trawls. September 26, 2008 7:49 PM

http://takeaction.oceana.org/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=25178 Many of our country’s trawl fisheries accidentally injure and kill endangered sea turtles by entangling them in their massive nets. Fortunately, there’s a Turtle Excluder Device – or TED – and it’s an “escape hatch” that allows a sea turtle to wiggle out of the trawl net, relatively unharmed. While some fisheries use TEDs, too many do not, and are not required to. Help convince the government to protect these ancient creatures by requiring TEDs in all trawl fisheries in the U.S. that operate in areas with sea turtles  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
