THE ‘GLIDER’

This Animal Is On the Verge of Extinction, and the Australian Government Is Destroying Its Last Home. Sign to Save the Greater Glider!

clint,

I remember coming across the most adorable video on my Facebook newsfeed recently about animals called the greater glider. They were flying through trees, and their big, black eyes stood out. But like most people, I’ve only ever seen the greater glider on the Internet.

That’s because the greater glider is increasingly rare, and have even been added to Australia’s list of federally threatened species. Despite this, the country is doing very little to save it.

This is unacceptable. I’m going to add my signature to this petition to save the greater glider. Will you join me?

Conservationists recently discovered that the Strathbogie forest in Victoria, Australia is home to one of the highest concentrations of greater gliders, in the world. Unfortunately, this forest is also home to a logging campaign that threatens to topple the greater gliders’ last stronghold.

Every time another tree falls, part of the greater gliders’ last remaining refuge disappears. If we let this continue, the greater glider will go extinct and all we’ll have left of these wonderful animals is Facebook videos!

We must show strength in numbers to sway the Victoria government, so please add your name to this petition now. The Victoria Forest Agency must halt all logging in the Strathbogies immediately before it’s too late for the greater glider.

Thank you,

Alex B.

P.S. Victoria’s own state government has advised against logging in the area since the species is “in a demonstrable rate of decline which is likely to result in extinction.” Please sign the petition before it’s too late for the greater glider.
