I’m happy to share our latest quarterly newsletter with you. We’ve taken a slightly different approach this time around and featured several facets of our campaign to save sea turtles.

We’re also officially introducing Kate Walsh, star of the hit TV shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” as our sea turtle campaign spokeswoman.

These stories and more are inside:

*Kate Walsh Wants to Get Sea Turtles Off the Hook: The actress travels to the Virgin Islands with Oceana to film a public service campaign to protect sea turtles.

*New Oceana victories to protect krill, sea turtles and more.

*Introducing Casey: This 11-year-old sea turtle activist from North Carolina raises money for sea turtles through bake sales, and joins Oceana’s holiday adopt-a-creature fundraiser.

*Nesting Nights: Oceana online editor Emily Fisher and marine biologist Kerri Lynn Miller traveled to Bald Head Island to witness loggerhead sea turtle nesting.

*Photos from our Sea Change Summer Party honoring Morgan Freeman and Glenn Close.

*A profile of Lea Haratani, marine biologist and new vice chair of the Ocean Council.

*A sustainable seafood recipe from renowned Spanish chef Sergi Arola.

You can also download a PDF of the newsletter. I hope you come away entertained and enlightened about Oceana’s work.
