This week emergency measures were finally imposed to protect endangered sperm whales from California's drift gillnet fishery. If a single sperm whale is harmed, the gillnet fishery for swordfish and shark will shut down for the season!
While the new protections may prevent whale deaths in the short term, we all know that the real fix is to phase out this wasteful fishery once and for all. We must keep the pressure on to phase out the curtains of death along the California coast.

Take Action to Support Whale Protections in the CA Drift Gillnet Fishery. It's 1 of the deadliest commercial fisheries in the U.S

Here's the link for the petition:

To help speed the phase out of the CA drift gillnet fishery, SeaTurtles.org published a new online exposé calling for an end to the gillnet fishery titled, California's Deadliest Catch.
