The Pacific leatherback turtle is largest of sea turtles, and one of the most impressive swimmers. Every year its 12,000 mile migration takes it to California to feast on jellyfish. But these turtles are disappearing.

California lawmakers have proposed making the leatherback turtle the state marine reptile. This isn't just a symbolic move state recognition will improve eduction about these creatures and give support to leatherback conservation.

We can't afford for California to lose this iconic turtle. Sign TODAY to tell the California State Assembly to give the Pacific leatherback turtle the recognition and help it deserves.
