Jared Leto is a big fan of the environment and using his celebrity to help others.
The global fishing fleet has a few giant fishing ships called super trawlers which use giant nets to catch all sorts of fish, completely wiping out whole species in an area and damaging the ecosystem.
One of the most destructive of these ships is the Margiris which is on its way to Australia right now!
If Australia allows it to enter their waters, it will be the largest fishing vessel ever allowed in Aussie waters.
"Please do this “@Greenpeace: global fishing 2.5x greater than oceans can sustain. Join @GreenpeaceAustP stop trawlers"
Greenpeace together with Leto is asking that people sign a petition addressed to the Australian government.
They want them to ban super trawlers so that they won't be able to destroy an entire ecosystem just for the profit of the fishing industry.
You can sign the petition HERE!
Down with trawlers!
