Success: Vital Wetlands Protected From Invasive and Toxic Industry

Target: Sam Cheptoris, Minister for Water and Environment, Uganda

Goal: Praise removal of dangerous human industries from Uganda’ lakes and wetlands.

The government of Uganda has announced that it will remove encroaching farms, mines, and factories responsible for rising water levels, unstable weather patterns, and increased danger to threatened and vulnerable species of animals and plant life. This will allow unique species such as the Mt. Elgon torrent frog crucial living space and will grant scientists more opportunities to study and preserve them.

In a victory for environmentalists, animal conservationists, and those who signed this petition, Uganda’s wildlife now has a chance to return to the balance it needs to ensure its survival. Sign the petition below to congratulate the Ugandan Water and Environment minister for his bold act to protect the environment and wildlife.


Dear Mr. Cheptoris,

Your ministry’s decision to act decisively to limit human interference in wetland ecosystems is a great success for wildlife conservation and environmental activism. Without considered action like yours, many species and plants would be under dire threats to their continued survival, further endangering other animals including humans.

Thank you for your work in limiting the harm done to the environment by human activity in Uganda’s wetlands.
