Sign the Petition to

Jacob Zuma

I am writing to you today in regards to a major issue happening in your country. The mountain gorilla a loving creature living in the forests of Rwanda and Uganda, sadly they are being slaughtered for no reason. I have decided to write to you for guidance on this important matter. There are approximately 600 gorillas left in the word right now, this making the mountain gorilla one of the most endangered animals in the world and without your help this number will only decrease making the mountain gorilla eventually extinct.

Habitat loss is one of three main reasons for the endangerment of the mountain gorilla because there are more than 100,000 people living in remote areas where mountain gorillas are also found. Villages need for land and resources resulted in mountain gorillas losing their habitat.
Hunting is the main reason for gorilla endangerment, mountain gorillas are hunted in Rwanda Africa not only for meat but for trophies and live infants. What is continuing to happen is highly illegal and needs to be stopped but can only be implemented with your support.

Poachers are illegally killing harmless animals for reasons in which are not good enough. By preventing them from killing more gorillas it will help decrease the extinction of the species, I would personally recommend harsher penalties on illegal hunting and poaching, this would set realisation into these criminals’ minds and hopefully bring this issue to an end.

I personally feel it is my responsibility to write to you Jacob today as a call for help toward this serious issue, this problem is an ongoing issue in which will not come to an end without your help. As leader of the country in which this problem is occurring I believe that you can make decisions affecting this issue making a change for the better. I would like it if you considered these options in hope to resolve this issue.

Signed,

Matthew Schulz

The person I have chosen to write to is the leader of the country in which this problem is occurring. As the leader of the country I believe Jacob Zuma is in a position to stop or prevent any issues happening in his country.
