Save Dugongs & Coral Reef in Japan
The U.S. government is planning to build a new American airstrip atop a healthy coral reef in Okinawa, Japan, that will likely destroy the diverse array of marine life the reef supports, including dugongs,* sea turtles and at least nine animal species threatened with extinction. We need your help to speak out!
Please take a minute to send the letter below to President Barack Obama.
Turtle Island Restoration Network has joined with environmental groups on both sides of the Pacific Ocean in a lawsuit in federal district court in San Francisco against the U.S. Department of Defense to stop the airstrip. But your letters can help us put a stop to it now, before it is too late.
*Dugongs are relatives of manatees but they have a fluked tail like that of a whale.
