Protecting Sea Mammals from Drift Gillnets, California

These massive fishing nets put many seal animals at risk.

For whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, sea turtles and sharks, drift gillnets used to catch swordfish are 200-foot high “walls of death” that indiscriminately destroy the balance of life off the coast of California. With Oceana, this project seeks to ban this practice.

Oceana is an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
