Stop Hunting Endangered Shorebirds on Migration

Target: Li Ganjie, Minister of Ecology and Environment of China

Goal: Stop hunting of endangered shorebirds along China river delta.

China’s Yangtze River delta is one of three prime hunting spots for endangered shorebirds. Thousands of birds are killed by hunters each year, including the critically endangered far eastern curlew and the great knot. While this hunting has been going on for decades, the extent of the damage has only recently been revealed.

We cannot let this continue. Too many bird species have been in serious danger over the past decade due to various factors, from climate change to pollution to hunting. These birds are flying to specific locations solely to breed; not only are the adults being killed, but a chance at keeping individual species strong with the birth of offspring is shot down as well. This could lead to many extinctions very quickly.

These birds deserve better than to be shot from the skies as they migrate. Sign this petition to outlaw hunting along the Yangtze River’s delta immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Li,

Thousands of migrating shorebirds are killed every year by hunters on the Yangtze River delta, including several endangered species such as the far eastern curlew. Not only are the adult birds losing their lives, but the hunting interrupts their breeding journeys, resulting in no offspring to take their places and keep the species stable.

You must put a stop to this immediately. Birds across the globe have been threatened far too much in recent years, by everything from pollution to climate change to hunters. If this keeps up, we could be seeing many extinctions in the near future. Outlaw the hunting of migrating birds immediately, so that the endangered among them can recover their numbers and thrive.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop the vile and evil hunting of the precious and innocent endangered shorebirds along vile and evil China river delta.

    This is all you would expect from evil China. These animal torturing murdering Chinese monsters are the vilest of animal torturers and animal murderers Worldwide.
    No precious and innocent animals or wildlife is safe in China
    from being heinously tortured to death.
    The vile and evil hunters must be hunted, tortured and deliberately killed the same as their innocent and helpless victims endured.

    Down with China. The monsters on our planet.

  2. MIGRATING BIRDS FLY THOUSANDS OF MILES JUST TO SURVIVE, AND MUTANT HUNTERS ARE ALLOWED TO HUNT THEM??? WTF IS WRONG WITH
    HUMANITY TO ALLOW SUCH AN OUTRAGE????? MAKES ME ASHAMED TO BE A PART OF THIS SPECIES!!!!

  3. Life in prison for hunting endangered birds!! No question! Action must be taken. Be a voice for those without! Please help these innocent birds!

  4. When birds are killed, by selfish humans, they are taking those birds away from the rest of society. This should be a crime punishable by jail terms. Once endangered birds are gone we cannot bring them back. It is up to the government of the area to stop the eventual extinction that will happen under their watch.Extinction is forever.

  5. Animal abusers murdering scumbags internationally require instigation of the death penalty and nothing less.
