Save the Leatherbacks - End Long-lining sign now

Everyone knows what a sea turtle is: a beautiful, graceful creature. Not everyone knows that the leatherback sea turtle may be extinct in ten years. Why is this? The biggest threat to the survival of the leatherback is long-lines. These are fishing lines that are up to sixty miles long. Every few feet along the line is a hook and bait. The unsuspecting leatherback takes the bait, and is usually dead by the time fishermen reel in the line. Leatherbacks are not the only animal that suffer from long lines: seals, dolphins and birds are caught too. You can help by not eating swordfish, tuna, or other top-of-the-food-chain fish. Besides helping the dolphins, seals, turtles, and other sea life, you'll be helping yourself, because these fish contain high levels of mercury that are harmful to your health. For more information, go to www.savetheleatherback.com.
