Dr. Sylvia Earle Signs Scientific Letter Calling for the End of the California Drift Gillnet Fishery

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.
