Aman D started this petition to Madras Crocodile Bank Trust Centre for Herpetology and

Recently a critically endangered specie of crocodile (Cuban Crocodile) was found dead at the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust, coinciding with an event taking place at the Sheraton Grand Chennai Resort with which it shares a common wall. The Cuban crocodile is listed as Critically Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, with the Trust having just one male and 3 females, after the death of a female on the night of 30th March. In spite of repeated requests to lower the volume that night and previous pleas by Padma Shri awardee Romulus Whitaker, founder of the trust, no action was taken. This has led to the death of a very rare animal due to negligence and indifference shown by the resort authorities.

The death of this croc must not be in vain. It was a stroke of luck that it wasn't the male who had been affected, not to take away from the fact that the female crocodile died due to discomfort and stress. Such blatant disregard for conservation of animal life and complete ignorance must be compensated by the authorities.
1. The resort must ban all events accompanying loud music and/or move the hi-fidelity speakers further away from the wall.
2. If the Trust decides to move the remaining 3 reptiles to another location, the cost must be borne by the resort.
3. Regional animal welfare authoritities must enquire why no action was taken by the resort staff inspite of several requests being made and award suitable punishment.

We have all grown up watching Steve Irwin, among other conservationists, work hard for the preservation of these beautiful creatures who have been roaming Earth for millions of years. Let's make sure our entertainment doesn't become their death sentence.
