Nearly all species of sea turtles are endangered, and every year thousands perish on their dangerous migrations. Sea turtles are rapidly losing nesting habitat to coastal development and rising seas, are often caught in discarded fishing gear, and many die from being caught in nets from fishing vessels. Without healthy ocean waters, sea turtles and so many other species cannot survive.
That’s why the United Nations Global Biodiversity Conference in the year ahead, as well as adoption of a new high seas treaty this year, is so critical. We need countries around the world to commit to immediate, specific action right away. Or else as many as 1 million species could be extinct within decades.
Send your message to U.N. members today, and call on global leaders to protect sea turtles and other species in our ocean.
Now’s the time for urgent action. To create the biggest public impact possible, we’re joining together with more than 25 like-minded organizations to show the collective strength of our Voice for the Planet and flood world leaders with our petitions to act.
Stand with us and use your voice to save sea turtles and many more threatened species. Send your message to United Nations members to call for action on biodiversity loss now.
