Sea Turtles In The Pacific Are At Risk

The Fisheries Service has admitted that loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles in the Pacific face a significant risk of extinction unless we reduce the number of turtles killed by commercial fisheries. Unfortunately, rather than take action to better protect sea turtles, the agency is proposing measures that would actually increase the number of turtles killed.

To read more about this topic and to perhaps help the turtles get greater protection, not less; the Fisheries Service is accepting public comment on the proposal for 45 days.

This is really sickening. I've copied your link. Will see if I can put something about it in my blog.
