Protect Rare Predator from Extinction

Target: Michael Finley, Chair of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission

Goal: Protect rare predator from extinction at the hands of habitat destruction.

A rare predator in Oregon may soon face extinction. Less than 200 Humboldt martens exist in the state of Oregon. Join conservationists in demanding the state add the species to its endangered species list.

The rare Humboldt marten is a small, cat-like mammal. It resides in the state’s coastal forests. However, its numbers have declined, faced with logging, habitat destruction, and trapping by hunters.

Only one death of this species per year could lead to under-population and extinction within the next generation or two. Something must be done now to protect this rare animal before the predator becomes the prey.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Finley,

The Humboldt marten may be a predator, but it’s been given less than a fighting chance in your state. Less than 200 of the tiny mammals survive, most killed  by habitat destruction and trapping.

The Humboldt marten is facing rapid extinction. Just one death per year can wipe out the population completely within a generation or two. I ask that you add the species to your state’s endangered species list immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  4. MAKE LAWS TO DEFEND THE HUMBOLT MARTEN NOW.

  5. Why does everything have to suffer for man’s selfish wanting? This creature will become extinct like so many hundred other species destroyed by and for man. It’s got to stop! It’s not as though man was the first species on the planet! Leave the other species alone to prosper and enrich the world.
