Support Proposed Barrier to Protect Dolphins

Spinner Dolphins Fairsing

Target: Eileen Sobeck, Director of the National Marine Fisheries Service

Goal: Support new proposal to build a barrier between wild dolphins and humans.

Spinner dolphins are highly intelligent and social creatures who live off the coasts of Hawaii. Unfortunately, local businesses have taken this as an opportunity to make money by offering tourist interaction with wild dolphins.

Interacting with wild dolphins is illegal under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and is not healthy for the animals. Interacting with wild dolphins can lead them to depend on people for food, trust people and boats that could harm them, and can mess up their natural migration patterns.

Sign this petition to show your support for the proposed barrier between wild dolphins and humans. This barrier could help wild dolphins tremendously.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Sobeck,

Recently, the National Marine Fisheries Service proposed the idea of building a barrier off the coasts of Hawaii to prevent tourists from interacting with wild spinner dolphins.

Many local businesses have capitalized on bringing tourists out to see wild dolphins. Unfortunately, interacting with wild dolphins can lead them to depend on people for food, trust people too much, and it can disrupt their migration patterns.

I wanted to thank you and show my support for the building of a barrier between the dolphins and humans. This barrier could help dolphins in many ways and help keep the population thriving.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
