Save The Parrotfish, Save Our Islands
Can you imagine the beach without powdery white sand? How about an ocean with no healthy coral reefs? Did you know that the parrotfish is critical in maintaining healthy coral reefs and marine ecosystems? Or that parrotfish produce sand?
The Save the Parrotfish, Save Our Islands campaign, an initiative launched by Sandals Resorts International is designed to increase awareness of the decreasing parrotfish population and the many implications of this on our marine environment, food security and the livelihoods of those who depend on the ocean.
The campaign will lobby for improved parrotfish management systems, whether through the introduction of a closed season for parrotfish, adding the parrotfish to the protected species list or through the implementation of stricter sanctions for catching undersized fish.
But we need your help. In order to give the parrotfish a fighting chance, we need to convince the powers that be to take notice and take action. There is power in numbers and we need you to lend your voice to the cause. By signing this petition you demonstrate your understanding of the importance of the parrotfish species and the need for urgent measures to protect them. Your signature also indicates your commitment to, at the very least, decreasing, if not ceasing, your consumption of parrotfish.
Join us as we strive to save the parrotfish and save our islands.
