Target: California Roadkill Observation System
Demand: Thank volunteers for fighting for better protection for wildlife.
Thousands of animals are killed every year by cars who don’t see them, or don’t care enough to slow down to avoid hitting them.
In California, there is a group of scientists, historians, and regular citizens who are working to protect these animals. Every day, these volunteers post pictures of dead animals to a website which tracks the locations. It’s called the California Roadkill Observation System and the ultimate goal is to convince the state’s highway department to construct road barriers or overhead cross paths so animals can cross the road safely.
These volunteers are doing such important work and deserve to be thanked.
Dear Volunteers of the California Roadkill Observation System,
So many people drive by dead animals on the road without a thought. These animals, simply trying to find food or get from one place to another, are victims of something they have no control over.
Building animal crossings or road barriers would help to prevent these senseless deaths and the work you’re doing is crucial to leading to their construction. We the undersigned thank you for your tireless work in defending these defenseless animals.
[Your Name Here]
