Target: The Right Honourable George Eustice, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Goal: Allow beavers to return to the wild to benefit the environment and cut flooding.
Recent studies across England have shown that the presence of beavers in the wild cuts down on flooding, filters pollutants from the water supply through their dams, and helps boost the presence of other wildlife. These creatures were hunted to near extinction in England centuries ago, and it is currently being debated whether they should be re-introduced to the wild.
England and the United Kingdom have had some of the worst environmental problems over the past decade. Many species of wildlife are close to extinct, green spaces are only just now slowly being reintroduced after years of destruction to make way for agriculture and industry, and water quality has been declining due to pollution. It is little coincidence that the presence of a valuable species such as this one lines up with the reduction of these problems.
The reintroduction of a species once nearly extinct would be a boon for England’s environment, in addition to the beaver being recognized as a native species again. Sign this petition to support the beaver’s return to the wild as soon as possible.
Dear Secretary Eustice,
Recent studies have shown that the presence of beavers in the wild is beneficial to England’s ecosystem. Beaver dams filter pollutants from the water as well as cut down on dangerous flooding, and beavers help boost the presence of other wildlife. These creatures were once thought to be extinct in the wild, but they are now being considered for reintroduction.
You must support this maneuver. England has been struggling for years with environmental problems, including but not limited to the loss of green spaces, forests, and various wild animals. The reintroduction of beavers to the wild would be a boon for nature itself, helping to restore the beauty and serenity of the outdoors that was once lost to industry and agriculture. Support the return of these wonderful creatures to the wild as soon as possible.
[Your Name Here]
