Stop Pushing Sumatran Tigers Toward Extinction

Target: Government officials in Indonesia

Goal: Stop Indonesian citizens from pushing Sumatran tigers to extinction.

In Sumatra, Indonesia, a subspecies of tigers called the Sumatran Tiger is quickly becoming close to extinct. There are only 400 individuals currently alive, and reports show that human beings are the direct cause of the declining number. According to extensive research, the endangered Sumatran Tiger is nearing extinction because of various human activity, including poaching and deforestation. This type of treatment by the people towards these precious and innocent animas has to be stopped once and for all.

The Sumatran Tiger has been endangered for quite a while now, but because of the actions of the people of Indonesia, they are rapidly headed near ultimate extinction. The actions of the Indonesian people, including deforestation of the tiger’s natural environment and the killing of these rare animals, are all contributing to the decline in the total number of tigers. Indonesia has laws that are in place to protect this endangered species, but unfortunately, these laws are not being enforced as they should be.

The government of Indonesia cannot allow this to go on as it has any longer, or before we know it, this beautiful rare subspecies of tigers will be alive only in pictures and memories. Take action to ensure that these animals are protected by signing this petition and sharing with everyone you know. Help make sure that the Sumatran Tiger continues on.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Indonesian government officials,

The Sumatran Tiger is a rare subspecies of tigers that exists only in Indonesia, and at the moment, there are only about 400 of them in existence. This beautiful animal, known for its darker fur color and thicker black stripes, is found exclusively on the island of Sumatra. Recent studies have shown the the actions of the people of Indonesia are directly responsible for these tigers being on the fast track towards complete extinction. This research has concluded that poaching, deforestation, and other human activities are causing this problem. While it is true that Indonesia has laws in place to fine people who do these things that harm the tigers, it is clear that the consequences are not strong enough.

In order to ensure that this endangered species is completely protected from these destructive actions by the Indonesian people, it is vital that you, the government, take bigger steps. I am signing this petition to urge you to please think about how these behaviors are affecting not only these tigers, but also our world at large, and do everything that you have to do to help make sure that poaching, deforestation, and other dangerous practices cannot happen as they have been.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It is sad that the Indonesian Govt., should be focused solely on quick profits through elimination of forests and ignore the beauty they have in the form of great rain forests and the best wild life that one can imagine.

    How can any human beings ignore the beauty of the great Tigers or the majesty of the Elephants, or that of all the rare animal species those forests contain. How can anyone destroy such natural richness for quick profits.

    Do the authorities ever realize that making room for big multinationals will not help the poor Indonesian people. It will only make the multinationals richer. In the long run the local economy and the people will continue to suffer, and will have no future for themselves.

    THIS IS NOT GOING TO HELP THE INDONESIAN PEOPLE IN THE LONG RUN. ONCE THE MULTINATIONALS GOT WHAT THEY WANT, THEY WONT SPEND EVEN A MINUTE THINKING/CARING ABOUT THE INDONESIAN PEOPLE OR THEIR WELFARE. BUT BY DESTROYING THE TIGERS HABITAT, YOU ARE ALSO DESTROYING LIFE SUSTAINING (YOU THE INDONASIAN PEOPLES LIFE SUPPORTING)ECOSYSTEM. OFCOURSE THESE HABITATS WORK IN CONCERT WITH THE WORLD WIDE ECOSYSTEMS TO PROVIDE LIFE SUPPORT FOR US ALL. YOU MIGHT SAY YOU ARE KILLING NOT ONLY THE TIGERS, RATHER YOU ARE KILLING YOURSELVES ALSO AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEMISE OF THE HUMAN RACE ON THIS PLANET. WITH ALL THE EVIDENCE PILING UP CAN’T YOU SEE/UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUS NATURE OF YOUR ACTIONS? DO YOU CARE SO LITTLE FOR YOUR OFFSPRING? THE FUTURE GENERATIONS WHO WILL PERPETUATE INDONESIAS PEOPLES AND CULTURE? ( PROVIDED THAT THEY CAN LIVE ON THIS EARTH), TOGETHER WITH THIS SUBSPECIES OF TIGERS AND ALL THE OTHER ANIMALS LIVING IN THESE HABITATS. RECONSIDER YOUR DECISION FOR YOUR AND YOUR CHILDRENS SAKE, AND THAT OF THE REST OF HUMANITY.
