Canada's woodland caribou are becoming seriously endangered. Take action!
Canadian caribou are facing grave danger when it comes to the survival of their species. The woodland animals, who live in Canada's southern regions, are fighting against logging and commercial development in their forest habitat. There are only about 60 caribou herds left.
Alberta, Canada, where many of these herds reside, has yet to prohibit logging operations in the area, and loggers continue to destroy the forests in the name of development and human advancement.
The woodland caribou need our help. Sign the petition urging the Committee on the Status of Endangered Species in Canada to encourage preservation action on behalf of the endangered Canadian caribou.
Dear Dr. Marty L. Leonard, Chairman of the Committee on the Status of Endangered Species in Canada,
I am concerned about the declining population of woodland caribou in Canada's southern regions. Human development and logging are quickly depleting the caribou's natural habitat. Now there are only around 60 caribou herds left.
Something needs to be done to further promote the survival of the woodland caribou, and yet Alberta and other parts of Canada still have not established moratoriums on logging and development in the areas where the caribou live.
I am writing to ask that you urge Alberta and the surrounding areas to implement protections for the woodland caribou and prohibit further logging and commercial development operations in or near their habitat.
Thank you for your consideration.
