Target: Government officials in Indonesia
Goal: Stop Indonesian citizens from pushing Sumatran tigers to extinction.
In Sumatra, Indonesia, a subspecies of tigers called the Sumatran Tiger is quickly becoming close to extinct. There are only 400 individuals currently alive, and reports show that human beings are the direct cause of the declining number. According to extensive research, the endangered Sumatran Tiger is nearing extinction because of various human activity, including poaching and deforestation. This type of treatment by the people towards these precious and innocent animas has to be stopped once and for all.
The Sumatran Tiger has been endangered for quite a while now, but because of the actions of the people of Indonesia, they are rapidly headed near ultimate extinction. The actions of the Indonesian people, including deforestation of the tiger’s natural environment and the killing of these rare animals, are all contributing to the decline in the total number of tigers. Indonesia has laws that are in place to protect this endangered species, but unfortunately, these laws are not being enforced as they should be.
The government of Indonesia cannot allow this to go on as it has any longer, or before we know it, this beautiful rare subspecies of tigers will be alive only in pictures and memories. Take action to ensure that these animals are protected by signing this petition and sharing with everyone you know. Help make sure that the Sumatran Tiger continues on.
Dear Indonesian government officials,
The Sumatran Tiger is a rare subspecies of tigers that exists only in Indonesia, and at the moment, there are only about 400 of them in existence. This beautiful animal, known for its darker fur color and thicker black stripes, is found exclusively on the island of Sumatra. Recent studies have shown the the actions of the people of Indonesia are directly responsible for these tigers being on the fast track towards complete extinction. This research has concluded that poaching, deforestation, and other human activities are causing this problem. While it is true that Indonesia has laws in place to fine people who do these things that harm the tigers, it is clear that the consequences are not strong enough.
In order to ensure that this endangered species is completely protected from these destructive actions by the Indonesian people, it is vital that you, the government, take bigger steps. I am signing this petition to urge you to please think about how these behaviors are affecting not only these tigers, but also our world at large, and do everything that you have to do to help make sure that poaching, deforestation, and other dangerous practices cannot happen as they have been.
