“Angela and I have wanted to get involved with Oceana for a while, so we jumped at the chance to be a part of their sea turtle campaign,” Harris said.
“The general public has no idea about the man-made dangers sea turtles face. Our hope is that these ads will raise awareness as well as compel people to take action and help save these animals,” Kinsey said.
According to Oceana, out of the seven sea turtle species worldwide, six swim in U.S. waters and all of them are either listed as “threatened” or “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act. Fishing nets, pollution, coastal development and other man-made threats all contribute to hundreds of thousands of turtles dying each year.
