Save Rare Dolphin from Extinction

Target: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Save rare dolphin from extinction by adding it to the endangered species list.

The Taiwanese humpback dolphin, a rare, white dolphin that lives only off the coast of Taiwan, is in danger of being wiped entirely off the planet. Only 75 individuals within the species still live.

Also known as the Taiwanese white dolphin, this animal has been put at risk from pollution, fishing, and rapid development. Now, so few of the dolphins live that they are very likely to go extinct in the coming years.

While the dolphin is not native to America, if the United States government would recognize the species as endangered, it could better offer support and resources to help Taiwan protect it. Sign the petition and ask that this majestic, rare, and beautiful dolphin be added to the endangered species list so that its population may thrive.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear  Mr. Sheehan,

Only 75 of the rare Taiwanese humpback dolphin, also known as the Taiwanese white dolphin, survive off the coast of Taiwan. Their numbers have been depleted by fishing, pollution, and rapid industrialization and development.

Although the species may only be native to Taiwan, it is important that all nations take an active role in the preservation of our planet and the species that call it home. If the United States were to classify the white dolphin as endangered, more resources could be dedicated to its protection. I ask that you accept the recent proposal to add the Taiwanese white dolphin to the endangered species list.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Please save this rare dolphin. No animal should go extinct because of humans.

  2. ALL wildlife, including MARINE LIFE, is essential for the survival of the planet and the humans who live on it. Each species, no matter its size nor how insignificant it may seem to humans, has its own role in making this planet work and thrive efficiently.

    Humans, however, are the least necessary species on earth, and the earth and every other species on it would fare much better without any of us or the destruction we leave in our wake.

    Man’s self-righteousness, selfishness, callousness, carelessness, thoughtlessness, greed and avarice is destroying our planet and all who live on it.

    “Were one to observe with an eye that discovereth the realities of all things, it would become clear that the greatest relationship that bindeth the world of being together lieth in the range of created things themselves, and that co-operation, mutual aid and reciprocity are essential characteristics in the unified body of the world of being, inasmuch as all created things are closely related together and each is influenced by the other or deriveth benefit therefrom, either directly or indirectly.
    Now concerning nature, it is but the essential properties and the necessary relations inherent in the realities of things. And though these infinite realities are diverse in their character yet they are in the utmost harmony and closely connected together “ Bahaí Faith Writings

    • Yes, it’s completely about “relationship” between all, and cannot be otherwise.

      This world’s ancient peoples once KNEW that, but now the world has forgotten, and opposed this reality, putting everything/everyone here in utmost danger of annihilation. The stupidity of man is absolutely astounding.

  6. Thank you RM….you are so right.
