Stop Cattle Ranchers from Destroying Amazon Rainforest

Target: Mónica Julissa De Los Rios de Leal, Head of the Regulatory Department of Environmental Services, Institute of Climate Change
Goal: Protect 500,000 acres of rainforest from giant cattle ranch.

Cattle Ranchers across Brazil want to convert wide swaths of rainforest into giant ranches that would decimate the environment. For every 500,000 acres stripped of forest and converted to grazing pasture, approximately 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions are released into atmosphere, as well as destroying the habitat for an extraordinary amount of wildlife and plant biodiversity.

Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and direct contribution to global warming. Moreover, deforestation accounts for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions – more than the entire global transportation sector.

Putting a stop to these ranchers’ projects would not only reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but it would also save numerous bird species and exotic wildlife. Stopping the ranches would also protect threatened tree species, improve local water quality, retain topsoil, and control erosion. We must take action now to stop these destructive cattle ranches.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mónica Julissa De Los Rios de Leal,

Cattle ranchers are planning on converting a large portion of rainforest into a giant ranch. This would decimate the environment by releasing 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. It would also destroy the habitat for an extraordinary amount of wildlife and plant biodiversity.

Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and direct contribution to global warming. Moreover, deforestation accounts for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions – more than the entire global transportation sector.

Please help us put a stop to these ranchers’ projects in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and save numerous bird species and exotic wildlife. Stopping the ranches would also protect threatened tree species, improve local water quality, retain topsoil, and control erosion. Please help us take action now to stop these destructive cattle ranches.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]
