Protect Recently Discovered Penguin Colony

Target: Jim Kurth, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Protect hidden colony of penguins in Antarctica in order to save the species.

A hidden colony of Adélie penguins was recently found on the Danger Islands of Antarctica, shortly after concern swept the ecological field regarding general penguin endangerment. Approximately 1.5 million penguins were discovered, enough to help downgrade the species to vulnerable and possibly save them from impending extinction within decades.

While this discovery is extremely welcome news, scientists are concerned that the existence of this colony alone will be enough for officials to declare the species safe. In truth, the protection of the area itself is also a major factor, as such spaces can easily fall victim to climate change-related dangers or overfishing. At the present, Danger Islands are largely safe from the effects of climate change and see very little human interaction. But the continued safety of this area requires funding and focus to maintain.

The discovery of this penguin colony is only one step in protecting the species. We must support the preservation of Danger Islands as a legally enforceable marine-protected area. Sign this petition to ensure that these birds will remain safe and their population healthy.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Kurth,

A colony of 1.5 million Adélie penguins has been discovered on the Danger Islands of Antarctica, answering the concern about the general endangerment of penguins on the continent. As of right now, the area is least suspect to climate change complications and sees very little human interaction.

But conservationists and scientists cannot rest easy. Despite the size of the colony and the safety of the area, it will not remain so without hard work and funding to ensure that Danger Islands will be a legally protected safe zone. We cannot simply assume that humans will stay away or that climate change will never touch them. You must help fund the preservation of Danger Islands as a legal safe space to protect this colony and ensure the survival of the species.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
