Protect Southern California’s Mountain Lions from Extinction

Target: Eric Sklar, President, CA Fish and Game Commission

Goal: Protect the lives and habitats of three rare mountain lion groups.

There are three populations of Southern Californian mountain lions at risk of imminent extinction. Harmed by habitat loss, hunting, and disease, more must be done to ensure that this majestic species is protected.

Mountain lions have frequently fallen victim to hunting because the practice is allowed if livestock have been put in danger. They are also frequently hit by cars, poisoned, and poached. Their populations are isolated to the Santa Monica Mountains, the Santa Ana Mountains, and the Eastern Peninsula. This isolation has prevented them from breeding or expanding their habitat.

Environmentalists fear that the mountain lion populations will not survive long term if nothing is done to protect their lives and their homes. Now, the species are up for consideration for the state’s endangered species list. Add your voice to their fight.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Sklar,

Three rare populations of mountain lion in your state may soon disappear forever. Hunting, poisoning, poaching, and habitat loss have decreased their numbers and have prevented new populations from forming. Environmentalists fear that the species will not survive long term.

The species are now up for endangered status. I ask that you add them to your state’s endangered species list and ensure they have the resources needed to survive.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
