Donate Now to Help Stop the Monster Nets

For years, mile-wide monster nets — known as gill nets — have indiscriminately trapped, injured and killed America’s imperiled dolphins, sea turtles, whales, and other wildlife.

It’s a terrible way to die — ensnared at sea by massive nets, traumatized, and struggling with their last breaths to break free.

Now the Trump administration has rescinded a proposed Obama-era rule that would have prohibited the use of these nets in West Coast swordfishing.

We should be finding ways to carefully and sustainably harvest only what we need from the ocean. Yet the Trump administration's decision reflects an outdated and misguided mindset — that consuming more swordfish is worth depleting dozens of other species. It’s a dead-end approach for us and for life in the oceans — and we must oppose it.

The Trump administration seems unwilling to retire these mile-wide monster nets, so Environmental Action is taking our efforts to the states. In the days, weeks, and months ahead, we will mobilize thousands of nature-loving people along the West Coast in support of state-level bans on these massive, indiscriminate death traps.

We need your support today to mobilize the public support we will need to win. Please donate whatever you can today to protect dolphins and other ocean life by retiring these awful monster nets.
