Target: Jamie Rappaport Clark, President and CEO of the Defenders of Wildlife
Goal: Save sea turtles from extinction.
All seven species of sea turtles are in critical danger of becoming extinct. Sea turtles have lived on this planet practically since the dawn of time, but they are slowly being wiped out by various threats such as water pollution, global warming, being slaughtered by poachers for their meat and shells, or being caught in fishing equipment. Be it through carelessness or selfishness, these amazing creatures will not be long for this world if we continue to allow these things to happen.
We must take great strides in order to protect this environment and its creatures, and that goes double for the ones in danger of completely dying out. Sea turtles have lived on this planet for millions of years, and there is no valid reason their incredibly long lifespan needs to be cut short. We must take stronger steps to stop pollution, take greater care not to endanger them when we fish, and issue stronger punishments against poachers.
No animal should have to face dying out completely due humanity’s carelessness and lack of foresight. Sea turtles deserve a clean habitat as well as a life free of threats like poachers and careless fishermen. Sign this petition to protect these magnificent creatures from extinction.
Dear President Clark,
All seven species of sea turtles are on the verge of extinction due to poachers, careless fishermen letting them get tangled in their equipment, global warming and water pollution. Sea turtles have been on this planet since the dawn of time, and we cannot allow their amazingly long lifespan to be so tragically cut short. The threats to their existence must be eliminated; we need to stamp out pollution, stop poachers in their tracks, address and correct global warming and encourage fishermen to be more careful with their equipment.
You can help us make that difference. Please do everything in your power to implement stronger laws and regulations to protect sea turtles. These creatures deserve to continue their existence in peace and safety.
