 We are so excited to tell you that the United States has submitted a proposal to protect all chambered nautiluses under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). And we are honored to say that the proposal was co-sponsored by Fiji, India, and Palau. Please help us spread the word internationally. CITES will meet in late Sept 2016 to vote on whether or not to support this proposal.  click here to read proposal

Below: meet our new friend Gretchen Googe 


Special thanks to our friend Gretchen Googe for her dedication to saving the nautilus! Gretchen has been supporting Save The Nautilus for more than a year now with all sorts of creative ideas. Gretchen just celebrated her 9th  birthday with a potluck fundraiser and she & her friends donated all of the money to saving the beautiful chambered nautilus! Way to go Gretchen!!! keep inspiring us!!!

One of Gretchen's great ideas (that we love) is to petition Endangered Species Chcoloate to make a nautius bar to raise awareness. If you agree with us that its a great idea email them at:
