Save White-Shouldered Ibis from Extinction

Target: Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia

Goal: Save the critically endangered white-shouldered ibis from extinction.

The white-shouldered ibis population has plummeted to 500 within the last century. These beautiful birds are the victim of habitat loss, as their native wetlands are being converted into property for plantations and other forms of human settlement, and their eggs are stolen by humans who raid their nests, seeing the eggs as a potential meal rather than housing a growing, living creature.

We cannot allow this to continue. The loss of this species will cause a great disruption in the ecosystem; their consumption of bugs helps control the bug populations, and the wetlands in which they reside are a vital part of nature. The species is already functionally extinct in Thailand and southern China, with the remaining population still residing in Cambodia.

We must protect this species from total collapse. The industrialization of Cambodian wetlands needs to be halted, leaving these beautiful natural spaces alone so that these birds can live in peace and slowly rebuild their species. Sign this petition to keep the white-shouldered ibis on this planet.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Hun Sen,

Your country hosts the last remaining number of white-shouldered ibis on this planet. The species has suffered a dramatic drop in numbers over the last century, and there are currently only 500 of these birds left. The majority of the species has fallen victim to habitat loss, hunting, and humans stealing their eggs from their nests for food.

Preservation of the wetlands is key. They are a vital part of nature overall, as are the birds who reside there; the loss of this species will upset the delicate ecosystem, as birds in general help to control the insect population that would otherwise run wild. You must halt the industrialization of the wetlands so these birds can survive and hopefully rebuild their species over time. Help us protect what remains of this magnificent species.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. END THE LOSS OF THIS GREAT SPECIES NAMED.WHITE SHOULDERED IBIS.

  2. Once this beautiful species is gone, there is no bringing it back…ever. Is this the kind of legacy you want to leave for your children and grandchildren? Killing off a species, that they will never get a chance to know, out of sheer greed for their habitat?

  3. As it was once said, “the extinction of one is the extinction of all…” Eventually we (humans) will be next unless we stop this.

  4. Carol Brandt says:

    For the sake of your own country – save this bird.

    Save the critically endangered white-shouldered ibis from extinction.

    I am sickened by the unimaginable atrocities that the vile human species commit against our precious animals and our precious wildlife. It is about time the human species responsible are made to suffer for their vile and evil ways.

    Eradication of these monsters responsible for this sadism and evilness is a must.

    Especially the vile and evil Trumps and hunters who are deliberately destroying our precious and innocent wildlife just for their evil and sadistic pleasure. Kill them all.

  6. Well said Bev Hun these animals bring more value to ur country than urbanization. Preserve your wilderness
