Take Action to Protect the World's Oceans

Dear Anne,

Stop the sale of manta ray leather

Tell the CEO of to remove manta ray products from his site»

A manta ray can live to be 40 years old—if it's not turned into a boot. These large, majestic fish are a favorite of divers lucky enough to see them, but they are also targeted by an unlikely foe: the leather industry.

Tell to stop selling manta ray products»

Manta rays are disappearing from our oceans, in part because of fishing for their skin, gills, and cartilage. Despite the manta ray's threatened status, manta ray "leather" fetches a high price. We recently discovered that, one of the world's largest commerce sites, sells boots and wallets made from rays.

They should know better. Several years ago, Oceana activists joined other conservation groups to successfully petition to stop selling shark products. We know they listen, so we're asking you to reach out to them again. A fancy wallet is not worth the price of an ocean without rays.

Sign today to tell CEO Jack Ma to stop profiting from the deaths of threatened manta rays»

Emily Fisher For the oceans,
Emily Fisher
