Target: Carter Roberts, President & CEO World Wildlife Fund
Goal: Allocate funds and develop programs aimed at preserving the habitat of the tapir.
Tapir habitats are being clear cut to make way for sugarcane and other commercial crops. The tapir, the largest land animal in South America, is a critical animal of the rainforest and must be preserved. This animal can weigh up to 650 pounds and is listed as endangered by many international organizations. There is still very little known about these amazing animals that are thought to play a secret role in the life of plants.
Demand that the World Wildlife Fund allocate funds and initiate programs to study and preserve the tapir and its habitat.
Dear Mr. Roberts,
The tapir is a large mammal that plays a critical role in the ecology of a rainforest. It can weigh up to 650 pounds and appears to be far more communal than once thought. Several organizations already list the tapir as endangered due to loss of habitat from sugarcane farmers clear cutting the area. As the largest land mammal in South America and a key player in rainforest health, the tapir must be preserved.
We demand that the World Wildlife Fund allocate money and initiate programs dedicated to studying and preserving the tapir and its habitat.
[Your Name Here]
