Save Dolphins from Drowning

We don't mean to fish for dolphins, but they're still getting caught

Hundreds of dolphins die off of US shores every year, caught by nets or longline hooks and unable to surface for air. Sadly, many dolphins find themselves tangled in nets they couldn't see, and they will drown if the nets are not brought up in time.

No one wants dolphins to die this way, including the fishermen. It's a sad end for a noble animal, and we want to do something about it.

We can make the seas safer for dolphins. We're calling on the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to ensure that dolphin deaths are kept to a minimum and that all incidents are properly reported. Sign TODAY to tell the government that we simply can’t stand by while dolphins drown.
