Together we can halt the loss of over 300,000 Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises every year.

1,000 Cetaceans are needlessly dying in fishing gear EVERY DAY only because Pingers are not present.

This has to Stop!

There should be no fishing gear without Pingers.

How many thousands of Dolphins and Porpoises need to die before the decision makers see the error they have made and act? The EU must support the use of Pingers on ALL gill nets in European waters and amend the 812/2004 Pinger mandate currently in place. Learn more & Sign the Petition at https://goo.gl/IkUy3s
