Last night our favorite TV doctor and sea turtle lover Kate Walsh appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Jimmy displayed a photo of Kate swimming alongside a sea turtle from her trip with Oceana to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Kate fought back giggles -- that Jimmy Kimmel, such a jokester -- to explain why she loves sea turtles.
Actress Kate Walsh, star of ABC’s “Private Practice,” (and that fantastic Cadillac commercial) has joined Oceana in our campaign to protect sea turtles. Needless to say, we are tickled to have her on board.
Walsh travelled with Oceana scientists to the U.S. Virgin Islands this summer, where she encountered leatherback hatchlings and swam with green sea turtles. (Watch the video below -- she's impressively graceful in the water).
Check out Kate's new website with Oceana, http://oceana.org/turtlesoffthehook, where you can see her new PSA about turtles, photo slideshows and bonus footage, and sign up to join Kate in the fight to get turtles off the hook.
