Save Spotted Turtle from Extinction

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

Goal: Add the rare spotted turtle to the endangered species list.

The population of spotted turtles is rapidly shrinking. Researchers have only found about 50 left in their natural habitat. This is a startling number, considering spotted turtles were once a common staple of Rhode Island wetlands.

The swift decline in the spotted turtle population is due to rampant development of their wetlands. Other areas, like Canada, have thus classified the species as endangered. It’s time for the United States to do the same.

Sign the petition and demand that the spotted turtle be added to the endangered species list. It must be protected, and its habitat must be preserved.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sheehan,

Once a common site in Rhode Island’s wetlands, the spotted turtle population has now shrunk to double digits. Only about 50 are left in its natural habitat. Its population is rapidly declining as development robs it of its wetlands.

The spotted turtle must be added to the endangered species list. Doing so will ensure its habitat is protected and the species is given a renewed chance at life. I ask that you add the spotted turtle to the endangered species list.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Remember the old adage, “the extinction of one is the extinction of the other.” One day, the other will be us! If we don’t do something now to make a difference.

  3. we should be so proud of ourselves, the way we are destroying this world and all creatures on it, and we think we are superior, what a laugh. so heartbreaking.

  5. LEFT IN THE WILD 50 …what the fuck is wrong with USA ….head in their ass….protect these creatures and believe in global warming CONGRESS….u bickering ol fuddie duddies.

  6. Every creature is here for a reason. It is our responsibility to protect their environment and protect them. We are losing too many species and this will come back on us. We only have one planet and must protect it for ourselves and those who will follow us.

  7. What is wrong with us? We seem hell-bent on destroying good and the innocent creatures while coddling the most venal

  8. Unlike humans, every animal, regardless of size, serves a vital part in evolution. Animals and the environment can survive without humans but vise versa.
