Hi. My name is Grace and I am 8 years old (though I'm listed under my mom's name since I could not do this with out her help).
I’ve learned a 98-mile stretch of the Susquehanna River, known as one of the nation’s best places to catch bass, is in trouble; according to John Arway the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission executive director. Lots of fish have black spots and open sores. Male fish are growing eggs and female fish have very high levels of male hormones! The pollutants in the river are a big problem. I’m worried that if the pollutants can be a problem to fish, they could start being a problem for humans too.
But I thought, “What can I do, am only eight?” Then I realized, maybe I could do something. I could start a petition!
So I am starting this online petition for concerned citizens to take action. Please help limit pollutants in the Susquehanna River. That will help the Susquehanna River, Chesapecke Bay, & the fish, animals & people that depend on both waterways.
