Dear Miley Cyrus,
Imperiled loggerhead sea turtles
, like the cute hatchlings featured in your new movie "The Last Song", need your help immediately. Their populations in U.S. waters and across the globe are in decline, and without a new wave of strong public support, they may slip into extinction.
You can make a big difference in the fight to save sea turtles by using your many television and media appearances to highlight the plight of sea turtles and their constant struggle to survive destructive fisheries, plastic pollution, and degrading nesting beach habitat. Nesting beaches in the U.S. are threatened by increased urban development, light pollution which causes hatchlings to stray away from the ocean, and rising sea levels from global warming. Join the Sea Turtle Restoration Project
today and help us support saving sea turtles from sliding to extinction.
