Dr. Sylvia Earle is joining Turtle Island Restoration Network in the fight to end the deadly California drift gillnet fishery, which sets mega nets out over night and indiscriminately harms a wide array of marine wildlife from sperm whales to sea turtles.

If you are a scientist, please join Dr. Sylvia Earle by signing this scientist letter which outlines the devastating impact of the California Drift Gillnet fishery on our marine ecosystem, and calls for a phasing out of this destructive fishing method.

To sign the letter email sylvia.earle@tirn.net with your name, position and affiliation, and you will be added to the letter.

Everyone can make a difference by signing on to our online petition here.
