Rachael Harris and Angela Kinsey are following in the footsteps of Kate Walsh with their new PSA for Oceana.

The actresses have taken to the water to educate the public about the dangers facing sea turtles. Earlier this year they visited Mexico with Oceana to learn about the creatures and to film the PSAs.

Kinsey, who spoke about the campaign on The George Lopez Show, said:

“The general public has no idea about the man-made dangers sea turtles face – our hope is that these ads will raise awareness as well as compel people to take action and help save these animals.”

The ad, part of a series of PSAs called “Getting Sea Turtles Off the Hook,” is hoping to inspire others to get involved with Oceana and its goal of saving sea turtles. Check it out after the jump below.

Oceana tells us:

“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. Though they have been swimming the world’s oceans for over 100 million years, they are now at risk of extinction due to human actions.”
