Gill nets ensnare, injure, and kill imperiled dolphins and other marine wildlife

Live in California? Take action to stop new, deadly drift gill nets.

Drift gill nets. Marine biologist Tom Steiner calls them “invisible curtains of death.” He says they are “a barbaric way of catching fish.”1 At Environmental Action, we call them “monster nets.” And these deadly devices inadvertently have killed thousands of sea turtles, whales, sea lions and other ocean animals since 1991.

Don’t let Congress push Mexican gray wolves over the brink into extinction

Mexican gray wolves are already on the brink — we can’t let Congress push them into extinction. Why are Mexican gray wolves at risk? There are just over 100 Mexican gray wolves living in the wild. But Sen. Jeff Flake just introduced legislation to erase their Endangered Species Act protections. That would be a devastating step backwards, opening the door to hunting, trapping […]
