Stop selling Nautilus and Allonautilus shells
I am the scientist asked by the US government to determine if the cephalopod Nautilus is in danger of extinction from overfishing. Three years later and trips to various sites in the Pacific where this living fossil lives, the answer is YES! For instance a half million nautilus shells were sold in the US in the last three years, most through Ebay. No more!
