PLEASE HELP US SAVE THE GOLIATH GROUPERS!
The justification put forward by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to kill 400 endangered goliath groupers to study their stomach contents and determine what they eat is as absurd as the justifications made by Japanese whalers claiming they must kill thousands of whales under the guise of research.
With the knowledge we have today these types of justifications are just simple inexcusable. When it comes to protecting highly threatened species that are just barely showing signs of recovery, we MUST draw a line and hold our management bodies to a higher standard.
Please TAKE ACTION - here's how you can help:
-If you're in FLORIDA please attend one of the many public workshops throughout in August and October.
Here's the list:
-If you cannot attend an in-person meeting please submit comments through the FWC website, send them an email, and make a phone call:
Thank you! Let's SAVE THE GOLIATH GROUPER!
