Protect Rare Shellfish From Extinction

Target: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Protect unique shellfish from extinction by adding it to the endangered species list.

A rare shellfish is facing extinction due to harvesting and importing. Known as the Chambered Nautilus, this shellfish is prized for its spiral shell. As a result, millions of them have been imported into the United States.

The National Marine Fisheries Service is asking that this shellfish be added to the endangered species list. No longer should it be used as a trinket in souvenir shops. This species dates back to ancient times. We cannot lose it now.

Sign the petition and demand that the Chambered Nautilus be added to the endangered species list as soon as possible. Do not let it become another species lost on our watch.


Dear Mr. Sheehan,

The Chambered Nautilus is a unique, rare shellfish that dates back to ancient times. It’s made its home in the ocean for thousands of years. However, now it faces extinction due to harvesting and importing.

The ancient species is being used as trinkets in souvenir shops. Should this continue, it will surely die out. I ask that it be added to the endangered species list so that it can no longer be harvested for its shells.
