Save The Leatherbacks/ Green Marinas Proposition

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!

Leatherbacks are one of the most distinctive Sea Turtles. They have existed for over 100 million years and are one of the closest animals to what constitutes a 'living fossil'.

Sadly, though, they are also one of the most endangered species of Sea Turtle, with only 34- 36,000 estimated females remaining worldwide. The animals are on a downward trend in terms of population, with some of the most prominent causes of their death being Boat hits, Oil poisoning, Fishing, and Human Habitat disturbance.

The Green Marinas Proposition states that citizens in the surrounding areas should not be able to enter the natural nesting area of Leatherback Sea Turtles, therefore protecting them from most human interference. A fine will be proposed.
