We present a locally supersymmetric action for a spinning membrane. This is obtained by supersymmetrizing the induced volume element action which is reformulated in terms of a three‐dimensional field theory. We also discuss more complex actions which are possible due to the nontriviality of (super) gravity in three dimensions.
