The federal government estimates that tens of thousands of endangered and threatened

The federal government estimates that tens of thousands of endangered and threatened sea turtles are caught and killed in the Southeast shrimp trawl fishery every year. Luckily, there is a simple solution. Improved Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) – metal grates inserted into shrimp nets –save sea turtles, including those that are too small to be saved by the current TED. This #TurtleTuesday, tell the Obama administration to require improved TEDs in all shrimp boats in U.S. waters by visiting Oceana.org/TEDsForAllTrawls #seaturtle #oceans #takeaction #bycatch #conservation #environment
