Help Wild Tigers Survive

Target: U.S. Senate
Sponsored by: Wildlife Conservation Society

There may be as few as 3,200 wild tigers in the world today — and they need our help. The world’s remaining tigers are threatened by poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation, and conflict with humans.

Your senators can help tigers by authorizing a new postage stamp whose purchase would support wildlife conservation projects — to create protected habitats, stop illegal poaching, and expand education.

Ask your senators to support the Stamp Act today — and help save the world’s remaining tigers

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/843/163/202

I have first acknowledge about the Tiger Temple at Kanchanaburi in March 2010, the first striked me was that, in Thailand, we do al respect the good deeds of the monk of theis temple. i was very surprised when i read the Annual report 2008 “Exploiting the tiger: Illegal Trade, Animal cruelty and ourists at Risk at the Tiger Temple.” [care for the Wild International]. i believed in the Care for the Wild international Organization, and i was truely believed that there must be some misunderstanding, for we are from different cultures and we may perceived the issues from different views. i do believe that we want the best for these wild animals. So, i went to the Tiger Temple early in April 2010, as my first field survey. And sadly, with highly disappointing, these animals arent being treated as they were shown on the television media, etc. it is a very shallowed and childish of me to raise a petition against the Protection of these tigers at the Tiger Temple. I, Siriporn Pipatshukait, hereby apologized for my mistake. I do believe that we can improve the Quality of lives of these great tigers, to be better, happier, and we can do this in a harmonized way. I am hereby, purposed myself as your volunteer, to improve tigers’ Quality of life, as well as other God’s creation creatures on this Earth. Yours Sincerely, Siriporn Pipatshukiat.

Dear Senator,

As your constituent, I write to seek your support for H.R. 1454, the Multinational Species Conservation Funds Semipostal Stamp Act, recently passed by the House, which would benefit global priority species such as tigers, rhinos, elephants, great apes and marine turtles, without any burden on the U.S. taxpayer.

This act would allow members of the public to voluntarily support conservation through the purchase of a postage stamp at a price slightly above the first class mail rate. The additional monies would go to the US Fish and Wildlife Service to implement congressionally authorized programs to conserve the world’s most majestic wildlife. The cost of designing the stamps and administering semipostal sales at the U.S. Postal Service would be deducted from the supplement.

As with the Breast Cancer Research Stamp, the U.S. Postal Service would issue a Multinational Species Conservation Funds semipostal stamp to be sold to the public at a premium price. The revenue these unique wildlife stamps generate would support the conservation of wildlife, under H.R. 1454. This creative funding mechanism would help to combat illegal poaching, resolve human-animal conflicts, protect habitat, and support conservation education programs.

H.R. 1454 has the potential to raise a significant amount of money for wildlife. For this reason, I urge you to support this important legislation and ensure it becomes law this year.

Sincerely,
Siriporn Pipatshukiat
