Turtles and Whales Caught in Walls of Death
Your donation can help us keep marine animals safe from deadly nets
Deadly drift gillnets are threatening the lives of endangered turtles, whales and more off the coast of California. These mile-long nets, left out overnight to catch swordfish, create an underwater "wall of death" for anything unlucky enough to swim into them. Among the animals caught are leatherback sea turtles, sperm whales and dolphins.
These nets should be banned, but instead the fishery may soon expand. Oceana is working hard to fight against the use of these deadly nets, but we can't do it alone. Your gift can help us protect turtles and other threatened marine animals in California and across the globe. If you donate by October 31, your donation will be MATCHED $1 to $1, up to $20,000!
