End the Seal Hunt
Save whales, sea lions, and polar bears: Protect the Bering Sea!

“The Bering Sea is home to several species of seal. Ribbon seals, Northern Fur seals, Spotted seals, and others rely on a healthy Bering Sea to survive. Greenpeace is working to protect Bering Sea ecosystems whose underwater canyons are larger than the Grand Canyon! This ecosystem needs to be protected just like the National Parks that we protect for wolves, bears, and others. Please show your support for protecting this important habitat by signing the petition and sharing it with your community. ” — Nick Magel (Cause Leader)

Save whales, sea lions, and polar bears: Protect the Bering Sea!

SIGN THE PETITION
Polar bears, fur seals, sea lions, walruses, whales and millions of sea birds make their home in the Bering Sea, and beneath the surface abundant life thrives in the Bering Sea Canyons– larger than the Grand Canyon itself. The importance of this place reaches far beyond its borders as the majority of the fish caught in the United States come from the Bering Sea.

But this spectacular ecosystem is under attack and showing signs of collapse. Large industrial fishing ships have already mined more than 150 billion pounds of fish from the Bering Sea — bulldozing over delicate deep sea corals and unique species of sponges in the process. The effect on the ecosystem has been devastating. It's not too late to protect Alaska's Bering Sea. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council is tasked with managing this national resource. We need protection for oceans worldwide, and we can start with protecting the health of the Bering Sea.

Greenpeace is leading a worldwide effort to set aside 40% of our oceans as marine reserves. A global network of ocean parks-like Yellowstones of the sea- will allow marine life to flourish and help restore the diversity that once characterized our waters. Today, less than one percent of the world's oceans are set aside as marine reserves. If we don't do more to protect and manage our oceans they aren't going to survive. Nowhere is that more important than the Bering Sea and its amazing canyons.

Tell the NPFMC to protect the Bering Sea Canyons. We can't afford to lose them.

WATCH THE VIDEO
Pacific Marine Mammal Center has reported they are in a "state of emergency". An unprecedented number of starving, sick, or injured sea lions are showing up on the shores of Southern California, and no one knows why. (Read More)

Currently, PMMC is caring for over 150 animals--an unprecedented number for this early in the year. The good news? Your support of The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood.org is helping PMMC continue to give good care to all these animals. The better news? It's working, as shown in this video. So watch, share, and feel free to cheer along!

Starving Baby Sea Lions Flood Southern California Shores

More and more starving sea lions are being found stranded on California shores, and animal rehabilitation centers are at their maximum capacity. Experts say there are fewer fish for these mammals to feed on, but they don't know why.

Gloria Hillard/NPR
In recent months, more than 1,000 starving baby sea lions have been found on Southern California beaches, from Santa Barbara to San Diego. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has just declared the crisis an "unusual mortality event."

On a recent early morning, Peter Wallerstein is on the job on a beach near Marina del Rey, Calif. His white truck is a familiar sight along this coastline. Next to him, a small blond dog named Pumpkin rides shotgun.

Wallerstein, the Marine Animal Rescue director for Friends of Animals, gets a call. A woman tells him she spotted a sea lion at the Fisherman's Wharf at Cabrillo. "He's just laying there; he doesn't look good," she says.

Peter Wallerstein uses a large fishing net to grab a sea lion pup that was stranded on a nearby dock.

Gloria Hillard/NPR
The phone rings every five minutes, and it's always about the same thing.

There's another call. This time, it's a man telling Wallerstein that there's a sea mammal that looks hurt.

More Pups On Shores

Since the beginning of the year, Wallerstein has picked up more than 300 sick and dying California sea lion pups. In 27 years of doing this work, he says, he's never seen anything like it.

"We wonder why there's no fish in the water, why the pups were born at such a low body weight. So they started out weak and cold and hungry, and it hasn't got any better when they're already weaned by mom and trying to find food, and they're not finding it," Wallerstein explains.

For two days, a baby sea lion has been stranded on a nearby dock. The people who made the call are relieved to see Wallerstein.

He gently places a large fishing net over the pup. Normally, there would be some resistance, but this baby sea lion hardly moves. Wallerstein is asked the same question he hears more than a dozen times a day: "Will it be OK?"

"I'm going to do the best I can for her," he says.

His next stop is a crowded pier. After navigating a rock wall, Wallerstein carries another weak pup back to his truck and gently transfers it to a dog crate.

'Broader Concerns'

"To date [since Jan. 1], we're at 1,100 California sea lion admits to rehabilitation, and the historical average for the same time period is about 130," says Sarah Wilkin, a marine biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service.

She says the main theory scientists are investigating is that the prey — the smaller fish these animals feed on — are just not available. The mystery is why.

“ It breaks my heart to see these little skinny pups being left here. And you could see they don't want to go into the water, they want to come back to the beach. I don't think they're going to make it on their own.
- Peter Wallerstein, Marine Animal Rescue director for Friends of Animals
"These sea lions might be our sentinel that tells us something else is going on that's going to be affecting other fish, that's going to be affecting sharks, that could have much broader concerns throughout the ocean," Wilkins says.

Sick Pups' Fate

It's late afternoon. There are six baby sea lions in the back of Wallerstein's truck. In recent weeks, marine mammal centers that have been rehabilitating the pups have reached maximum capacity.

He takes a deep breath and makes the call.

The center can only take the two most critical baby sea lions. So Wallerstein drives the others to a more secluded beach where he hopes they won't be bothered by people.

"It breaks my heart to see these little skinny pups being left here. And you could see they don't want to go into the water, they want to come back to the beach," Wallerstein says. "I don't think they're going to make it on their own."

From the shore, people cheer when the young sea lions move toward the cold waves. But within minutes, the weakened pups come back, trying to find warmth on the sand.

So many species rely on the health of the Bering Sea in the Arctic Ocean, including our own. We have less than two months to convince the North Pacific Fishing Management Council that protecting this critical ecosystem must happen before it's too late.
Global fisheries rely on the health of the Bering Sea not to mention the threatened species that call it home, including whales, seals and polar bears.

You can help protect this place as a marine refuge by sharing with your friends and family. But act fast. Time is running out to create a marine reserve in the Bering Sea!

Update #4 Save whales, sea lions, and polar bears: Protect the Bering Sea!
Get others involved
INVITE FRIENDS


We're running out of time! We have until the end of May to get enough signatures to deliver to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council telling them the Bering Sea deserves protection.
Home to Northern fur seals, whales, sea lions, polar bears and even undiscovered underwater species, the Bering Sea is too special a place to risk by opening up to habitat destruction.

Share with your friends that the Bering Sea need helps before it's too late!

Update #5 Save whales, sea lions, and polar bears: Protect the Bering Sea!
Get others involved
INVITE FRIENDS


To ensure the survival of the Bering Sea, one of the world's most beautiful places and most productive fisheries, regulators must protect it from unsustainable fishing including obstructive fishing trawlers.

Greenpeace is headed to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council in a few short weeks to deliver thousands of petitions to the council. Our goal is to convince them to protect the Bering Sea and its amazing underwater canyons before its too late.

Add your voice to the message before its too late, and tell your friends and family to protect the Bering Sea!
