Help Us Stop Fishing Nets from Killing Sea Turtles
An Important Turtle Nesting Beach Suffocated by Marine Debris
Every year, tons of discarded fishing gear wash up on the beaches of Cabo Verde a remote island nation in the central Atlantic Ocean, where thousands of loggerhead sea turtles come to lay their eggs. Sea Shepherd and local conservation organization Biosfera have teamed up to remove this deadly fishing gear from the beaches and stop it from choking the mother and baby turtles before they safely reach the waters. But we need your help! Watch the film below to learn more, then take action!
