Trapped in a drift gillnet off the coast of California, a dolphin struggles to free herself to no avail. She twists, turns, and thrashes, but nothing works. Unable to find a way out to surface for air, she drowns.

The drift gillnet was set to catch swordfish, but that doesn’t stop it from ensnaring anything unlucky enough to cross its path – dolphins, sea turtles, whales. Over 100 marine mammals suffer this tragic fate each year – and it’s entirely preventable.

That’s why Oceana fights tooth and nail to ban the use of these mile-long walls of death. But we can’t do it alone. Without the help of Oceana members like you, there’s no way we stand a chance at keeping drift gillnets out of the water – and fighting for other policies that protect our oceans.

Our special match offer expires in just under 48 hours, and I noticed you haven’t made your gift yet, Abacus. Anything you can give makes a difference – make your tax-deductible, year-end gift to Oceana right now. All gifts are matched until midnight tomorrow!

We’ve stood up to drift gillnets before and come out on top – and with your help, we can do it again. Five years ago, an estimated 500 vessels were operating illegally in the Mediterranean, some with nets up to 12 miles long. Oceana’s savvy campaigning – from media work to pressuring public officials to take action – got Turkey and Morocco, the biggest offenders, to stop their illegal use of drift gillnets.

We’re fighting to save ocean life off the U.S. West Coast – but we’re going to need as many Oceana supporters as possible to power us to victory. Dolphins, whales, sea lions and other ocean creatures are counting on you, Abacus: Give a MATCHED gift to Oceana today and help us defend them and the world’s oceans from threats like drift gillnets.

Your support makes a real difference – for dolphins, and for our oceans. Thank you.

For the oceans,
Geoff Shester
California Campaign Director
Oceana

Dedicated to my once best friend, who finally deserted me on “Pearl Harbor Day” but it took me years to realize it for sure and to finally realize not only was it for the best….it was a VERY good thing.    ~~dru~~

Tears are here to fall,

Leaves like the night fade and fall,

My insides hurt and my outsides appall

Tears are here to fall.
