Thousands of short-beaked common dolphins are being killed by fishing vessels targeting pelagic fish species in EU waters. This barbaric practice is dismissively referred to as 'bycatch' by the fishing industry.

I'm a volunteer at Blue Planet Society so I can help to conserve our amazing marine wildlife - and I'm determined to help save short-beaked common dolphins from these horrific deaths.

I'm calling on Virginijus Sinkevičius, the EU Commissioner-designate for Environment and Oceans, to take urgent action to end this cruel and avoidable mass slaughter of these highly intelligent and much-loved animals.

Please sign petition to help save short-beaked common dolphins.
