IG Jason Momoa | Repost from @savethereef • BREAKING NEWS: A 260 boat-strong Chinese fishing fleet has been detected surrounding the Galapagos islands off the coast of Ecuador, according to the country’s navy. WE MUST ALL SIGN THE PETITION TO PROTECT THE WILDLIFE THERE & SHARE THIS TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL so the ships stop disturbing this UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrated for its unique wildlife and biodiversity! Currently, the ships are outside a 188-mile wide exclusive economic zone around the island, but their presence has already raised the prospect of serious damage to the delicate marine ecosystem, said a former environment minister, Yolanda Kakabadse. “This fleet’s size and aggressiveness against marine species is a big threat to the balance of species in the Galápagos.” On Monday, Kakabadse was put in charge of designing a “protection strategy” for the islands, which lie 563 miles west of the South American mainland and we MUST all help protect this important ecosystem by signing the petition to stop allowing these vessels to get away with this (see link in our story/highlights) and sharing this with everyone we know because it’s going to take widespread international pressure and much more news coverage to stop this environmental tragedy from happening! We cannot allow a repeat of 2017 when the Ecuadorean Navy captured a Chinese vessel, The Fu Yuan Yu Leng 999, which was part of a similar-sized fishing fleet, and found to be carrying 300 tons of marine wildlife, with more than 6,000 illegally killed sharks. WE CANNOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN AGAIN HERE so please sign the petition/share this news with your followers & tag people, celebrities, influencers and news media who need to see it and let’s protect the marine life of the Galápagos Islands! Thank you for the heads up @sosgalapagos @jim_abernethy #galapagosislands #saveouroceans #stopillegalfishing #karmagawa #savethereef
