Save the Emperor Penguin From Extinction

Target: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)

Goal: Protect emperor penguins from going extinct due to habitat loss caused by global warming.

The emperor penguin is one of nature’s most iconic creatures and has captured the imaginations of millions worldwide. Yet these majestic birds may vanish by the end of this century as their icy habitat dwindles due to global warming. Scientists say measures must be taken now to help prevent their extinction.

Studies conducted by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) have previously suggested that penguins may be imperiled due to loss of habitat and food, yet the most recent data looks even more grim. After studying the migratory habits of these birds over 54 colonies, they now project that the emperor penguin could be extinct by as soon as the year 2100.

While this may seem like a distant date, the researchers urge that measures be taken now to combat global warming so that the species may have a chance. Sign this petition to urge the acting director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to grant protection for emperor penguins under the United States’ Endangered Species Act so that more can be done to save these vulnerable birds.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sheehan,

The emperor penguin is beloved as a symbol of Antarctica. It is also in grave danger of extinction by the end of this century, according to new data from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. According to researchers, we only have a narrow window of time in which measures may be taken to prevent the environmental catastrophe which will likely cause this species’ extinction.

While many species are imperiled due to global warming, by granting the emperor penguin endangered status under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and taking the necessary actions to combat its habitat loss, we will likely help save many other species in the process. Please ensure that these majestic birds are allowed to thrive for generations to come.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    • Sugandha Nagarajan says:

      I agree, humans are barbaric but since humans have a frontal cortex, this makes us even more barbaric.

  2. C.A. Rose says:

    Have the guts to do what is right. Pay attention to scientists and ignore the GOP and a moronic president who admires dictators and thinks global warming is a hoax.

  3. Heather Brophy says:

    Sheehan, Remember, we the people pay you to protect if you can’t then get the hell out now!

  4. Nadine brundage says:

    Global warming is a fact, certain political representatives will tell you it’s fake news. Our environment needs to be protected for the future or we will all be doomed.

  5. RoseMarie Dorer says:

    ALL wildlife is essential for the survirecent attack by special interests by voting no on S 1514.val of the planet and the humans who live on it. Each species, no matter its size nor how insignificant it may seem to humans, has its own role in making this planet work and thrive efficiently.

    Humans, however, are the least necessary species on earth, and the earth and every other species on it would fare much better without any of us or the destruction we leave in our wake.

    Man’s self-righteousness, selfishness, callousness, carelessness, thoughtlessness, greed and avarice is destroying our planet and all who live and depend on it.

  6. Please stop harming these beautiful creatures

  7. How many more species are humans going too eradicate with lust for money & total lack of integrity. The best creature it wipe of the planet would be humans, that way all other living creatures would live as nature intended.

  8. Please help the world by paying attention to our precious environment. Truly, we are responsible to keep our precious world from falling into further disrepair.

  9. Carl Fisher says:

    It is a crime, travesty and an outrage that these gorgeous, beautiful, majestic creatures are on the verge of extinction. Instead let us work towards making Trump and his idiot cohorts extinct. The only “Change” we need is a change in Washington. NOT Climate change!

  10. Denise Devereux says:

    The Human Race disgusts me and has a lot to answer for. Selfish, indulgent, greedy, narcistic race.
    The only creature needing to be culled from this planet is us – HUMANS.
    Better God shows his vengeance and destroys this planet.
    I am ready to die are you?

  11. christine warman says:

    By the time these greedy people have finished half of the animals here today will be no more by tomorrow.They are disgusting care for nothing but destroying out planet,out grand children will probably never see many of the animals here now down to ther greed.

  12. TROY HOUGHTALING SR says:

    Lets think about for a minute. There is nothing more important to this world then what God put here for us to enjoy. From the smallest insect to the biggest mammal. We all need to step back and look at the big picture of what is and not important. We need to stop killing the animals for are non living rights. This is the animals planet before it is are. The emperor penguin is one the grandest birds there is. Please help to keep this bird alive.

  13. Caryl Sawyer says:

    Sheehan is probably just as useless as the last guy, just sucking up tax dollars.

  14. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Signed & shared❗️😠

  15. Marilyn Glasgow says:

    Vile, selfish humans won’t be satisfied until every beautiful, wonderful creature is wiped off of the face of the earth. Animals mean nothing to them. Politicians couldn’t care less about them.Look at all of the authorities that can do something about the carnage, the USDA, Fish and Wildlife, etc. And they do nothing. The only help they have is people like you and me. When all of these beautiful, amazing souls are gone, all that will be left is the ugly, mean species. How sad that will be.
