Protect Wildlife from Anthrax

Target: Alassane Ouattara, President of Côte d’Ivoire

Goal: Stop anthrax from wiping out wildlife.

Scientists have discovered the deadly anthrax bacteria lurking within West Africa’s Taï National Park. A recent study showed that almost 40 percent of recent animal deaths in the area were linked to the bacteria, particularly chimpanzee deaths; according to the scientists’ findings, the bacteria could very well lead to the extinction of chimpanzees should it continue to spread.

It is unknown why the bacteria is currently active in this location, or how and where the animals become infected. It is unlikely that the bacteria itself can be destroyed, but the researchers and scientists are searching for ways to protect remaining animals from anthrax-related deaths, including the possibility of vaccinations.

We must support this endeavor completely. In an age where a mass extinction is entirely possible due to climate change and other factors, we must protect any and all wildlife as best we can. Sign this petition to demand full support for the West African scientific community’s mission to protect its wildlife from the anthrax bacteria.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Ouattara,

Scientists have discovered that the anthrax bacteria is active in Tai National Park and that almost 40 percent of recent wildlife deaths in the area were linked to it, particularly chimpanzee deaths. If the bacteria continues to spread, more and more animals will die, and the chimpanzee could slowly become extinct.

These scientists are currently seeking ways to protect the wildlife from the bacteria, including but not limited to vaccination. You must support them as wholly as possible in their endeavor; in an age where we could easily see another mass extinction down the line, we must strive to protect as much of our wildlife as possible. Please grant these scientists your full support in protecting the wildlife of Tai National Park.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The owner should be prosecuted and put in jail and not be allowed to have any animals ever. There is something wrong with the woman. Please prosecute. Animal abuse cannot be forgiven
