Sign the Petition to

Vladimir Putin President of Russia

Dear Vladimir Putin,
My campaign goal is to raise awareness about the Amur Leopard which is on the verge of extinction. With the laws you have but in place for poaching from 2013 with the World Wildlife Fund, I think there needs to be a stronger punishment than just a $30,000 fine for killing an endangered animal.

According to poaching statistics, numbers of poaching incidents have been on the rise since 2013 so this issue is still occurring too often. Over the least 5 years there have been 580 leopards poached that have been recorded. With poaching number this high it’s going to hurt the reproduction rate of the Amur leopard as there are only around 60 left in the wild so they are at risk of extinction. Poaching is illegal and inhumane and needs to be seen to be dealt with strongly by the law.

If you raise the penalties for poaching it will make people think more about whether it is even worth the risk. This should reduce poaching and with less poaching the Amur leopard and other breeds can reproduce and spread out and become more stable with a higher number count.

Vladimir Putin as the president of Russia you have a responsibility to make sure the laws are followed and if you get behind the cause and make an example of the poachers, it will make a difference to help the Amur Leopards.

Please take the requested action and support my campaign.

Yours sincerely,
Kayd Shepheard

As the president he has all the power to make these changes because
the Amur Leopard is primly found in south-eastern Russia and he can clearly influence pollution

With more names on my petition it will show that people care
and that he should take action.
