Demand Louisiana Governor Halt Sea Turtle Deaths in Shrimp Nets
Louisiana's Governor Bobby Jindal is responsible for allowing the drowning of thousands of sea turtles in shrimp trawl nets. He had a chance to repeal the state law banning enforcement of Turtle Excluder Devices but vetoed the bill that would have resulted in a more sustainable future for shrimp trawling.
Send the message below to Governor Jindal demanding he repeal the outdated and cruel law that stands in the way of ensuring a healthy recovery of endangered sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico.
Over eighty expert scientists have joined the Sea Turtle Restoration Project in calling for a repeal of the cruel law that is based on old science and poor politics.
