Protect Firefly Habitats by Ending Deforestation

Target: Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Malaysia

Goal: Protect firefly habitats by ending rampant deforestation in Malaysia.

Firefly habitats are being destroyed by rampant deforestation. Thousands of trees have been cut down in forests surrounding Taiping in Malaysia. Fireflies make their homes in Nipah Palm and Berembang trees, both of which are shrinking in number.

Fireflies, which are facing threats in countries around the world, are not the only species harmed by deforestation. Entire habitats, both on land and in the nearby Septetang River, are being destroyed.

The government in the area has already issued warnings; however, these have gone unheeded. Sign the petition and demand that deforestation in Taiping be brought to an end. A warning is not enough. Severe legal action must be taken.


Dear Minister Jaafar,

Deforestation in forests around Taiping is destroying the habitats of fireflies who make the forests and its trees their home. Fireflies are facing threats all around the world and more must be done to protect them, starting in Taiping.

In addition to fireflies, species on both land and in the river are harmed by incessant deforestation. Warnings are no longer enough. Legal action must be taken. I demand that you enact laws and regulations that protect the fireflies, their homes, and the homes of others species.
