It’s Action Time for Makos! We need EU and U.S. citizens to reach out to public officials to get them to change their positions on the adoption of long-overdue science-based ICCAT catch limits. The European Commissioner for Fisheries and the US Department of Commerce have the power to alter their respective positions, and we need to get them to act fast before it’s too late for the mako shark.

Voice your support on Twitter

For US citizens, a tweet to the US Commerce Secretary @WilburRoss will show the support for a ban on mako catches

Dive businesses depend on a healthy ocean to generate great economic benefits. By opposing urgent scientific advice to protect North Atl. mako sharks, the U.S. puts the population, ecosystem & dive industry at risk. @WilburRoss Please support a ban on mako catches #ICCAT2020

For citizens of EU Member States we need to let Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius that EU actions (or in this case inaction) are not acceptable.
