Save the Mountain Arctic Butterfly From Going Extinct

Target: Ms. Maria Ohisalo, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change in Finland

Goal: Advocate for the conservation of the mountain arctic butterfly (Oeneis jutta) and its habitat.

The mountain arctic butterfly is a rare and endangered species found in the northern regions of Europe, including Finland. The butterfly lives in high-altitude habitats, particularly on mountain slopes and tundra areas, and is a crucial part of the ecosystem.

However, the mountain arctic butterfly is facing numerous threats that are putting it in danger of extinction. The destruction of its habitat due to climate change, deforestation, and land development is causing a significant decline in the population of the butterfly. Additionally, the use of pesticides and herbicides is also impacting the butterfly’s survival, as these chemicals are known to harm and kill pollinators.

The mountain arctic butterfly’s conservation is critical to maintaining the delicate balance of the ecosystem and ensuring the survival of other species that depend on it. Therefore, it is crucial to take action to protect and conserve the butterfly and its habitat.

We urge for a proactive stance on this matter, with the implementation of measures to protect the butterfly’s habitat and limit the use of pesticides and herbicides that can harm pollinators. Conservation efforts for the mountain arctic butterfly should include measures to restore its habitat, reduce human activities that pose a threat to the butterfly, and educate the public about the importance of the butterfly’s conservation.

We must take immediate action to save the mountain arctic butterfly from extinction and preserve the ecosystem that depends on it. Sign below and demand the Minister of Environment and Climate Change in Finland take concrete measures to conserve the mountain arctic butterfly.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Maria Ohisalo,

We are writing to urge you to advocate for the conservation of the mountain arctic butterfly and its habitat in Finland.

The mountain arctic butterfly is a rare and endangered species that plays a critical role in maintaining the ecosystem’s balance in northern regions of Europe, including Finland. However, the destruction of its habitat due to climate change, deforestation, and land development, as well as the use of pesticides and herbicides, are putting it at risk of extinction.

We humbly implore you to take proactive measures to protect this species. Conservation efforts should include taking measures to restore their habitat, limiting the use of pesticides and herbicides, and educating the public about the importance of the butterfly’s conservation.

We must act now, not only for the benefit of the butterfly itself, but also for the overall health of the ecosystem that depends on it. Therefore, we urge you to take concrete steps to conserve the mountain arctic butterfly and its habitat.

Sincerely,
