End Deforestation That’s Killed Millions of Acres of Habitat

Target: Fabiola Martha Muñoz Dodero, Minister of Environment, Peru

Goal: Bring an end to deforestation that’s rapidly killing the Amazon rainforest.

More than five million acres in the Peruvian Amazon have been destroyed by deforestation in a span of only 15 years. This rampant destruction has killed the habitats of countless endangered species.

The causes of this deforestation range from agriculture and livestock to logging and mining. Peru contains roughly 70 percent of the world’s biodiversity. This means any habitat destruction will have dire effects on the world’s ecosystems.

As a nation boasting the second-largest amount of Amazon rainforest in the world, Peru should be doing more to protect this rare and endangered natural treasure. Sign the petition to demand that Peru take immediate action to bring this destructive deforestation to an end.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Dodero,

Peru is home to the second-largest amount of Amazon rainforest in the world, yet it is doing little to protect this rare and treasured piece of the natural world. More than five million acres have been destroyed in only 15 years, and this is bound to increase.

Mining, agriculture, and logging, allowed to run rampant, are the major causes of this deforestation. Something must be done immediately to protect the rainforests, the habitats, and the biodiversity of your nation. I demand that you and your government take action to end deforestation in the Amazon.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Our precious rainforests must be protected from the encroachment of predatory corporations motivated by insatiable greed and vested interest. Those individuals care nothing for our environment it’s disappearing wildlife, and the cataclysmic effects of irreversible climate change. Those pillagers will never be satisfied till our beautiful planet is turned into a barren landscape. ENOUGH already !
