Sigourney WeaverLast week, Sigourney Weaver joined with the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition, which represents more than 60 conservation organizations from around the world, at the United Nations headquarters in New York. They were there to ask for action against bottom trawling practices of deep sea fisheries. Scientists say this practice is ruining rare and sensitive habitats.

Said Weaver, “The oceans that millions of people around the world depend on for sustenance and livelihood are being plundered while the world sits by and watches. Some of the oldest ecosystems on Earth are being destroyed. Most people think somebody somewhere is looking out for the deep oceans, but they aren’t. These deep sea trawlers are operating beyond the reach of the law. It’s up to all of us to change that.”
