Target: Neil Parish, House of Commons Member and Chair of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee
Goal: Help pay for conservation efforts with a portion of money made from tourism.
A group of environmentalists is aiming to bring back endangered species by improving how ecosystems function. If successful, many animals that are currently listed as endangered will likely soon rise in numbers.
In order to improve the functioning of ecosystems some environmentalists are striving to make them more self-sustainable. Through money made by their charity organization, Rewilding Britain, these environmentalists are connecting passageways between ecosystems. Wildlife is then able to travel freely in and through corridors, despite human surroundings.
Recently the group made headway restoring a river ecosystem by refilling an ancient canal with water. Once filled, the river returned to its original state and—in turn—attracted several types of birds to the area, including various endangered bats.
If the government were to set aside a portion of money made from tourism to help with these types of projects, many more lost ecosystems could likely be saved. Sign this petition and encourage British officials to support the funding of rewilding projects partially through tourists’ dollars in order to bring back endangered species that may soon cease to exist without the help.
Dear Mr. Parish,
A group of environmentalists is doing its best to bring back endangered species by restoring ecosystems. The more successful they are at repairing these ecosystems, the more animals will likely be taken off of the endangered species list.
The group is accomplishing their goal by creating connections between ecosystems that animals may navigate through and to without having to worry about human interference. In fact, they recently helped to bring back several types of birds and endangered bats to a portion of River Adur by refilling an ancient canal with water and—as a result—the river was restored to its previous ecosystem.
If the group had more money to help them with their goals, they would likely be successful in restoring many more ecosystems. Such money could easily be provided through the tourism industry, as it would not be difficult to set aside a portion of money to help accomplish these tasks.
For all of these reasons, I urge you to support setting aside a portion of money made from tourism in order to help these environmentalists restore lost ecosystems in Britain. If something is not done to help their efforts now, many endangered animals may soon be gone forever.
