I think I signed but at the end of this message it does say, "No Targets Found".

The Georgia Aquarium wants to import 18 wild-caught belugas, despite the National Marine Fisheries Service ruling that it can’t because of conservation issues.
The whales would come from Russia, torn from their family groups and destined for a miserable life behind glass. According to the Fisheries Service, five of these whales could still be nursing, i.e. dependent on their mothers.
The Fisheries Service refused a permit to import the whales on the grounds that this could have a significant impact on the wild population. Georgia Aquarium, however, is not taking no for an answer and plans to fight to ruling to the best of its ability.
Directly threatening already struggling whale populations is no way supports the Aquarium’s already dubious conservation claims. The cruelty involved, meanwhile, is completely unacceptable.
Tell Georgia Aquarium to stop fighting for the “right” to endanger whales and to start phasing out the keeping of cetaceans altogether.
No Targets found.
