Save Rare Dolphin from Extinction

Target: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Save rare dolphin from extinction by adding it to the endangered species list.

The Taiwanese humpback dolphin, a rare, white dolphin that lives only off the coast of Taiwan, is in danger of being wiped entirely off the planet. Only 75 individuals within the species still live.

Also known as the Taiwanese white dolphin, this animal has been put at risk from pollution, fishing, and rapid development. Now, so few of the dolphins live that they are very likely to go extinct in the coming years.

While the dolphin is not native to America, if the United States government would recognize the species as endangered, it could better offer support and resources to help Taiwan protect it. Sign the petition and ask that this majestic, rare, and beautiful dolphin be added to the endangered species list so that its population may thrive.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear  Mr. Sheehan,

Only 75 of the rare Taiwanese humpback dolphin, also known as the Taiwanese white dolphin, survive off the coast of Taiwan. Their numbers have been depleted by fishing, pollution, and rapid industrialization and development.

Although the species may only be native to Taiwan, it is important that all nations take an active role in the preservation of our planet and the species that call it home. If the United States were to classify the white dolphin as endangered, more resources could be dedicated to its protection. I ask that you accept the recent proposal to add the Taiwanese white dolphin to the endangered species list.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
