Join Oceana in helping to save thousands of sea turtles that are threatened and endangered.

Right now, the federal government allows about half of shrimp trawls to operate without Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs). These boats kill thousands of sea turtles in the United States each year.

A proposed rule would require the use of TEDs in more trawl nets, saving more sea turtles, but the Trump administration is stalling this life-saving effort.

Tell Secretary Ross to save thousands of threatened and endangered sea turtles each year by finalizing the proposed TEDs rule immediately.
