Current Action Alerts
Comment on Proposed Ship Speed Rules to Protect Right Whales!
With only about 350 individuals remaining, North Atlantic right whales are the most critically endangered species on the planet. One of the biggest threats to their survival are ship strikes, but scientific studies show that slowing the speed of vessels reduces the risk of lethal vessel collisions significantly.
There is no time to waste. Join us in supporting the National Marine Fisheries Service’s efforts to strengthen the federal rules that protect our beloved North Atlantic right whales.
Act to Protect Horseshoe Crabs and Migratory Shorebirds!
Horseshoe crabs (HSC) are considered a critical (“keystone”) species in our coastal environments, an every spring, female HSCs lay thousands of eggs that provide a critical food source for fish, turtles, and migratory birds–especially the long-distance avian migrants that come to our coast, like red knots.
Unfortunately, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) is considering a rollback on horseshoe crab harvest limits. Contact ASMFC today and ask that they DO NOT change the regulations. Encourage the agency to adopt Option 1 (i.e., no change).
Advocate for Limits on Georgia’s Redfish!
Georgia allows the smallest redfish to be harvested in the Southeast and has the largest bag limit (5 per person and no boat limit)–nearly twice the limits of neighboring states. South Carolina and Northeast Florida have a bag limit of 2-3 per person, a vessel limit of 6-8 redfish, and larger slot size. As a result, Georgia’s redfish species are suffering, but new rules on redfish limits can help the species thrive.
Contact the GA DNR Commissioner, Mark Williams, and your State of Georgia Senator and Representative to ask that they advocate for the GA DNR Board to pass stricter bag, boat, and size limits.
