Fishing gear designed to capture some of our favorite fish is threatening sea turtle survival.
In June 2015, Lauren Conrad and Oceana traveled to the Rancho Nuevo Sea Turtle Sanctuary in Mexico where the world's most endangered species, Kemp's Ridley sea turtles, come to nest on its beaches. With help from the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP), Conrad and Oceana patrolled the beaches and released hatchlings into the Gulf of Mexico where their life begins.
Conrad has joined Oceana's campaign to urge the U.S. government to take action and protect endangered sea turtles in the southeast shrimp trawl fishery. Watch her PSA to learn why she wants you to get involved, too. Sign our petition here: http://bit.ly/21rx56I
