    Detailed Information:
    Combine grassroots activism, international advocacy, public health campaigns about mercury in seafood, media advocacy and the use of multi-media we are building a movement to stop longline fishing for tuna and swordfish in the Pacific. The Pacific leatherback is expected to go extinct in 5-20 years unless the UN implements a moratorium on longling.
