Kate Walsh, a longtime supporter of Oceana, is fronting a new campaign for the conservation group called “Getting Sea Turtles Off the Hook”.

The Private Practice actress will star in a number of print, online and TV, Web and radio spots to help raise awareness of the species — and what can be done to ensure their longtime survival. We need to raise awareness about sea turtles because most people don’t even know that they’re in trouble,” said Walsh. “If people know about what’s actually happening in the water, it will encourage them to take action to help save sea turtles.”

Out of the seven sea turtle species worldwide, six swim in U.S. waters and all of them are either listed as “threatened” or “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act. Everything from pollution to overfishing to coastal development contributes to hundreds of thousands of turtle deaths each year. Oceana’s campaign to save sea turtles is focused on gaining stronger protections from fishing gear as well as protections for key habitat areas. Oceana is also working to persuade Congress to pass comprehensive sea turtle protection legislation.

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
