Target: Josh Frydenburg, Australian Minister for the Environment and Energy
Goal: Stop the construction of a four-lane highway that would lead to the death of 200 koalas.
The Australian government announced its plan to build a four-lane highway through the current home of 200 koalas. Researchers believe that if the highway is built, this population of koalas will go extinct within 20 to 25 years.
New developments eliminate the little land left for wild animals. Building this highway will eliminate half of the koalas’ food sources and will lead to an increase in koala deaths due to car accidents. The expansion is unnecessary and will be extremely detrimental to Australia’s environment.
It is believed there might be as little as 43,000 koalas left in the wild. This new highway would quickly eliminate 200 of them. Sign this petition and demand that the government reconsider the construction of this highway.
Dear Minister Frydenburg,
Recently, the construction of a new four-lane highway in New South Wales has been announced. This new highway would kill 200 koalas within 20 to 25 years.
There are less than 100,000 koalas left in the wild, and some experts believe there are as little as 43,000 left. This highway would lead to more koala deaths due to car accidents, and it would eliminate half the food sources for the 200 koalas living on this land.
There is not much land left on this earth for wild creatures to live. By continuing construction of new developments, we are taking away more and more land. Soon there will be nowhere for animals to live. Please consider halting the development of this new highway.
[Your Name Here]
