Protect Endangered Dragonfly from Extinction

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

Goal: Enact protections for the rare and endangered southern snaketail dragonfly.

A rare dragonfly found in America’s south may soon go extinct. The southern snaketail dragonfly is found in Mississippi, Florida, and Louisiana. Scientists, conservationists, and dragonfly experts classify the green dragonfly as “vulnerable.”

Pollution is the main factor in the rapid decrease of the dragonfly’s numbers. Mining, logging, and pesticides from runoff create water pollution that destroy the dragonfly’s larvae. Without healthy offspring, the dragonfly cannot hope to survive.

The southern snaketail dragonfly is just one of the more than 40 plant, animal, and insect species the Center for Biological Diversity is demanding protection for. Sign the petition to demand the federal government act immediately to classify the southern snaketail dragonfly as endangered, and demand the government award it all of the protections that come with such a title.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Sheehan,

The Center for Biological Diversity has recently released a list of over 40 plant, animal, and insect species it believes deserve protection. The southern snaketail dragonfly, found in America’s south, is quickly facing extinction. Water pollution is killing its offspring, ensuring that the population cannot grow.

I demand action be taken now to preserve the future of this insect. Every living being, no matter its size, deserves a chance at survival. Classify the southern snaketail dragonfly as endangered and award it all of the privileges and protections such a title carries with it.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
