Take Action - Ensure Endangered status for U.S. Loggerhead Sea Turtles
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER!
Write to Support the Proposed "Uplist" of Loggerheads to Endangered Status
Your letter supporting the endangered listing of loggerheads will affirm years of scientific studies that show distinct loggerhead populations are imperiled, and greater regulatory measures are needed for the recovery of these populations. Once listed as endangered, U.S. loggerheads will gain critical habitat protections under the Endangered Species Act.
In the U.S., our North Pacific and Northwest Atlantic loggerheads are under direct threat from longline fisheries that crisscross critical migratory and feeding habitats, and a strong message must be sent to the National Marine Fisheries Service to reduce loggerhead captures immediately to help the species recover.
