Protect Endangered Sea Life

Target: Benjamin Friedman, Administrator (acting) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Goal: Put regulations that protect endangered sea animals back on the table for federal government consideration.

Donald Trump is condemning endangered whales, dolphins, sharks, and sea turtles to death. His administration recently ordered the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to throw out a rule that would have protected endangered sea life from sword fishing gill nets.

The proposed rule would have measured endangered sea life off the coast of California that had been killed by nets and would have halted sword fishing when the count became too high. However, now there will be no limit at all.

Our diminishing sea life is already under attack. These nets kill about 100 protected animals every single year. Sign the petition and demand that the proposed regulation be reinstated. If the rapid murder rate of these animals continues, there will be no hope of ever saving them from extinction.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Friedman,

Your organization recently tossed out proposed legislation, at the demand of the Trump Administration, that would have saved endangered sea life like whales, sharks, dolphins, and sea turtles. The regulation would have protected these animals from deadly sword fish nets.

However, now the nets will continue to kill 100 endangered sea animals every single year. If this murder continues, our oceans will be depleted of their unique, endangered species. I demand that the proposed regulation be put back on the table for the betterment of the future of our oceans and our planet.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Do not listen to Trump, he knows not what to do other than making money. Very clueless administration about what is happening and doesn’t care!

  2. It’s so appalling that the Trump administration is attempting to throw out these protections. This is another of Trump’s many attacks on wildlife, and it must not happen!

  3. END THE PROTECTIONS BECOMING WEAK FOR ALL MARINE LIFE NOW. KEEP IT PROTECTED OR ELSE NOW.
