Nearly all species of sea turtles are endangered, and every year thousands perish on their dangerous migrations. Sea turtles are rapidly losing nesting habitat to coastal development and rising seas, are often caught in discarded fishing gear, and many die from being caught in nets from fishing vessels. Without healthy ocean waters, sea turtles and so many other species cannot survive.
That's why the United Nations Global Biodiversity Conference in the year ahead, as well as adoption of a new high seas treaty this year, is so critical. We need countries around the world to commit to immediate, specific action right away. Or else as many as 1 million species could be extinct within decades.
Send your message to U.N. members today, and call on global leaders to protect sea turtles and other species in our ocean.
Now's the time for urgent action. To create the biggest public impact possible, we're joining together with more than 25 like-minded organizations to show the collective strength of our Voice for the Planet and flood world leaders with our petitions to act.
Stand with us and use your voice to save sea turtles and many more threatened species. Send your message to United Nations members to call for action on biodiversity loss now.
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
We can’t protect our nation’s clean air, water and natural places unless we preserve critical conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
Protect Our Ocean and Marine Life
We must act now to save sea turtles and other threatened species from disappearing forever. I urge you to take action to protect the animals and nature that our planet needs to thrive. It is imperative that world leaders take strong action to halt biodiversity loss or else as many as 1 million species could be extinct within decades. Every species that we lose undermines the delicate balance of life on Earth, and the loss of nature exacerbates grave threats like climate change. Don't wait to commit to immediate, specific actions to save species like sea turtles.
