Sign the petition and join the fight to keep the Amur leopard alive.
The Amur leopard is one of the most endangered animals in the world. With only about 20 living today, this majestic animal's future is in grave danger. Human interference, especially relating to habitat loss, is largely to blame for the Amur's endangerment. Commercial logging is the primary culprit.
Poaching is also one of the strongest contributors. Hunters kill both the leopards for the fur as well as the leopards' prey in order to procure compensation for livestock.
It's sad that we've come to a place whereby financial gain is put above the future existence of these precious animals.
Urge the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) — an organization that works to save leopards and other animals around the world — to intervene immediately so as to halt the extinction of the Amur leopard.
Dear IFAW's President and Chief Executive Officer Azzedine Downes:
IFAW has continuously worked to improve animal treatment throughout the world through several methods of conservation. And that's why I am writing to you today — to bring to your attention the plight of the Amur leopard.
The Amur leopard is at the brink of extinction. There are only 20-30 of these beautiful jungle cats left in the world, and the numbers are decreasing.
Deforestation is quickly depleting the leopard's habitat and poaching continues to threaten this feline. Human interference is all but killing these poor cats off.
I urge you to fight for this animal's future. Your organization could be its only hope.
Thank you for your time.
