Save Endangered Cheetahs from Certain Death

Target: Inger Andersen, Director General, International Union for Conservation of Nature

Goal: List cheetahs as an endangered species.

Southern Africa’s cheetahs are dangerously close to extinction. Although southern Africa is home to the largest remaining population of cheetahs, there are only 3,500 left. This number is less than half of what the population was only a year ago.

Cheetahs are officially listed as “vulnerable” by international committees. However, if this rampant reduction in their population is any indication, these species will certainly go extinct. More than 90 percent of their habitat is lost.

Scientists estimate that the species will decrease by as much as 70 percent in 10 years and may be extinct in as soon as 20 years. Steps must be taken to protect them from death before it is too late. Sign the petition to demand that the cheetah be added to the endangered species list.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Anderson,

The cheetah population of southern African has decreased rapidly in recent years. More than 90 percent of its habitat has been destroyed, while the species itself is predicted to go extinct in as little as 20 years.

Steps must be taken now to protect this animal from death. No longer should the cheetah be considered “vulnerable.” Its fate is far worse. I demand that the cheetah be classified as endangered and added to the international endangered species list.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
