Target: Actor Jared Leto
Goal: Thank actor Jared Leto for becoming a global ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund.
Oscar winner Jared Leto has become a global ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), an international conservation organization. For more than five decades, World Wildlife Fund has helped to shield nature from harm, and promote peace between nature and humans. WWF is a global name, and is present in over 100 countries. Leto is known as an Oscar winner, but he is also known for his passions for the environment and animals.
Leto’s first task is to help with the atrocity of wildlife crime. He accompanied WWF in South Africa to gain knowledge of the crucial rhino-poaching problem, occurring in Africa and Asia. According to Save the Rhino International, “During 2014, in South Africa alone a staggering 1,215 rhinos were killed by poachers, that’s one every eight hours.” That statistic is quite alarming, and if we all sit idly by, rhinos will quickly become extinct.
As a well-known actor, Leto has the tools to be the light for those animals left in the darkness. His name will bring focus to these horrid wildlife issues. Media is a critical outlet to promote such causes, and we must praise Leto for all of his efforts to help tackle a devastating problem. By signing this petition, you are expressing your gratitude to Leto for taking a stand for animals as a WWF global ambassador.
Dear Jared Leto,
World Wildlife Fund is an amazing organization that has helped to protect the environment and animals for more than 50 years. As a global ambassador, you can show others how to help endangered species and draw attention to other pressing environmental issues.
The work you have begun in South Africa to protect rhinos from extinction is truly impressive. The poaching business is an ugly one that needs to be stopped. Your voice is one that several people will listen to. I commend you for taking your fame, and success, and using it to protect the Earth.
Congratulations, for becoming a global ambassador. Your love for the environment and animals has shown throughout the years. By representing an international organization like WWF, you will be able to accomplish many wonderful things. Thank you for trying to save the rhinos, and for extending further knowledge to the public about their plight. Your work inspires fans and animal lovers throughout the world.
