Thank you for signing the petition to the National Marine Fisheries Service asking them to protect Hawaii's green sea turtles - Hawaii's national treasure. Over 125,000 of you have signed our petition through Change.org and through our website demanding that NMFS not cave in to fisheries interests and others who want to remove safeguards that keep these gentle ocean dwellers from harm.
Please consider joining as a member of the Sea Turtle Restoration Project and help us keep up the pressure to prevent any erosion of protections for the honu that could result in them being hunted again.
For your gift of $25 or more, we will thank you with a free sea turtle keychain and window decal.
