I am writing this on behalf of the Canadian Lynx and all other endangered
species. To help the endangered species were planning to not buy items made of fur or
any animal parts. We are also going to advertise our project by using a website, blog,
and the internet (such as: emails, Facebook, and Twitter). We hope by being able to tell
many other people that we can make an impact. Right now many species, various plants
and animals, are endangered. The reason that they’re going extinct is mostly our fault.
We often cut down forests, chasing many animals away from their habitat. Also we start
expanding our communities which takes many other animal and plant habitats. Many of
these plants and animals are used for many purposes. If we can keep the species from
going extinct, that would help people tremendously. We now need to help them, because
it’s our fault.
I believe if we started this problem, we should be the ones to fix it. My
friend and I have written this letter to you hoping that you would listen to us, and
help us tell others that this problem is getting serious and it needs to be fixed.
