Petition to Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Fisheries of Indonesia, WWF Indonesia
The issue is that a lot of people illegally catch sharks that are at the brink of extinction or even endangered. These people can also commit shark finning when they cut off the poor sharks' fins and throw them back into the ocean. Some sharks are caught and turned into shark fin soup, a delicacy in Asia. Our goal in protecting the sharks is to spread awareness and inform people of what they are doing. Sharks are now critically endangered because of people (especially fishermen) who hunt them down and kill them. They do this because dried shark fins can cost up to $1,000 to $1m even though a shark fin is only five% of the sharks' body, if they sell dried shark fins, they can get a lot of money. Global warming can also have an impact on how sharks can go extinct, the carbon dioxide that we produce every day can result in acid rain, forcing the sharks and the other sea animals to change habitats. Global warming can also result in sea level rise because it melts the ice in the artic and anywhere frozen, turning it into a liquid and it gathers with the water in the ocean and makes the water level go up,Read more

Petition to US Government
We use over 20 million tons of road salt each year and where does it go when you put it on the road? It goes into the soil and waterways! Which is a big problem as road salt can not only kill marine animals but can change soil composition and kill plants. We can all change  this by raising enough awareness so the government can use an environmentally friendly deicer instead of this toxic road salt. Even if we fail we can all reduce the use of road salt or use a more environmentally safe deicer that will only cost a little bit more. Please, save the environment. Read more

“Alcohol-related deaths remain a silent epidemic.” - Camille Bains, The Canadian Press (June 13, 2019). https://globalnews.ca/news/5386829/alcohol-deaths-hospital-study/ The media normalizes drinking culture at all legal and illegal ages, at all celebrations and many college movies or teen advertisements. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention recommends only having ONE or TWO drinks per day, with a TWO day sober break in between. Why isn’t this somewhere on a label like cigarettes or marijuana packages? Alcohol can be very dangerous to our health in many ways.  According to ourworldindata.org, in 2019 alcohol-use was responsible for 2.44 million deaths. What are we waiting for? https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/substances-risk-factor-vs-direct-deaths In my opinion alcohol distributors should be responsible for identifying the risks associated with binge drinking on each individual label. Might we even include a support line for those already addicted or on their way? Perhaps the CRISIS line, just in case? Please sign my petition and be part of the change! Thank you so very much in advance. Keep smiling :) Read more

Petition to Dr. Ashvine Kumar, Dr. Dinesh sharma, Prof. N​.​K. Taneja
We request the immediate cancellation of Intermediate Semesters Examination for CCSU Students In light of the COVID 19 Pandemic, Many Esteemed Universities have cancelled their End Semester Examination with immediate effect as per UGC Guidelines, giving students relief and a sense of safety in this tough time. We can be contacted at  registrar@ccsuniversity.ac.infor a dialogue, media queries and concerns. However CCSU decided to keep the deadline of cancellation uncertain till July 20th 2020 building pressure, stress and fear in the minds of student. The Mental Health and Equal Opportunity of students is not something which can be compromised 1) Many students do not have regular access to Internet, Laptops and Mobile Devices due to Economical and Geographical barriers, making them not being able to access the online classes, Notes and Quizzes hence it is not fair to ask them to give exams whether Offline or Online 2) Many students are out of Delhi and fearing for health and safety it is not right to ask them to leave the safety of their own homes to live unsupervised in PGs and Hostels 3) The Mental Health of students is being affected. They are already living in a difficult time surrounded by fear, anxiety and stress and by making them live in uncertainty while other universities are cancelling exams is not fair 4) Students with disabilities, Underlying Health Conditions and Morbidities are also under an unfair situation in such a situation 5) The Focus should be entirely on Final Year Students as their careers and degrees are compromised in this situation and thus their exams should be conducted over a proper period without the concern for intermediate semesters In conclusion, with the the current scenario, We ask the CCSU Administration to follow the UGC Guidelines and Cancel Intermediate Semester Examinations and Grade on the basis of Internal Assessment and Previous SemestersRead more

Petition to City of McKinney Texas
Please note that any signatures gathered after 10/7/21 (after 4,063 signatures) are applicable to our updated information reflecting information gathered at the 10/4/21 city council meeting in which we were assured there are no plans for a heavy industrial facility. Our update is as follows: Thank you so much for your support of our campaign against what we perceived to be the possibility of a heavy industrial facility at a property located 1 mile from the edge of the Heard’s property line (distinctive of our main building), based on the documents that were made available to the public. You and we have made our voices Heard. We believe the city’s intent is to keep this project as light industrial (LI), such as rock, concrete and construction materials recycling center; through what city council members have said will be a minimally invasive setup. However, we hope that the developers’ plans do not, in future, leave room for modifications to the project that would make it all the more invasive. We will continue to try to reach out to the city to better understand their understanding of the project. For now, they have tabled the decision and they will finalize it in two weeks. Ultimately, it is their decision to make, and this is a part of the makeup of our system of government. Should any further developments occur in this situation, we will do our best to keep the public aware of them. If you would like to keep up-to-date on the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary’s programs and projects (and learn more about us in general), we ask that you please consider subscribing to our newsletters here: https://www.heardmuseum.org/news/ We do our best to keep emails minimal and never share our contacts (and you can unsubscribe at any time using the link at the bottom of our emails). You can also follow our social media at https://www.facebook.com/connectwithnature or https://instagram.com/heardmuseum_connectwithnature Thank you again for your support. It means so much to the Heard to know that the community is behind us in our mission to continue to bring nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore and preserve our priceless environment. Thank YOU. Previous petition text for transparency: Recently, Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary representatives learned that an approval for a concrete recycling plant (planned for a property 1 mile from the Heard), had very quietly made its way through McKinney’s Planning & Zoning Committee. At the time, it faced little to no opposition (quite likely because very few were aware it was on the table—20th century communication for 21st century plans). It was approved by McKinney P & Z in August. This Monday, October 4 (NOT Tuesday--mark your calendars), it goes to City Council for final approval, including an annexation ordinance (that is already written up and ready to sign—posted on City of McKinney’s page http://mckinney.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=9852506&GUID=0B1A9947-A7D5-4980-975C-96B47EC5CA8A Now that the City Council Agenda has been posted (as is required within 72 hours before the meeting), we now have access to a DIFFERENT version of the LOI that completely differs in the indicated intentions with regards to Heavy Industrial (HI). Version 1: Listed HI Intentions per first-known “Letter of Intent” listing on P&Z (marked July 23, 2021): “The Property is currently under contract to an entity whose primary business is concrete and construction materials recycling, as well as concrete batch plant and associated activities. The addition of the above additional permitted uses will accommodate the anticipated activities of the purchaser, while restricting many of the more intense uses permitted under the HI-Heavy Industrial zone.”(See full document here: http://mckinney.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=9725627&GUID=186996E4-6944-4B35-A864-AC32C7DFCFDE Version 2: Listed HI Intentions per now-published (via City Council Agenda) version of “Letter of Intent” (also marked July 23, 2021: “As referenced above, a separate application requesting Heavy Industrial (HI) zoning of the Property is also being submitted for review and approval.”(See full document here: http://mckinney.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=9852504&GUID=644462FD-31AF-441F-AA4A-217E1C5F533F Our Position on This Matter Whatever the cause of this information only now being released, the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is wholly opposed to new Heavy Industrial facilities being built so close to this nature preserve. Moreover, we are concerned about ecological ramifications to other neighboring properties and natural resources. We are concerned about the following: Health issues from the pollutants generated will be applicable to our staff, volunteers, visitors, all neighbors and wildlife due to dust/silica that will make its way into the air. The City Council has a duty to protect the health and welfare of the citizens of McKinney. These duties to health and welfare are being sacrificed in the name of supposed "Protecting Future Development" and "Fiscal Responsibility,” which we maintain cannot be achieved without the health and welfare of the citizens. This action is also in opposition to the City’s self-proclaimed “Unique by Nature” motto, which, in of itself, functions as an over-arching promise to the citizens, whether intentional or not. There have been recent, as yet unfulfilled, resolutions to close existing cement plants (which happen to be in relative regional proximity to the new location. These existing locations have already been cited numerous times for inability to properly maintain EPA mandated standards with regards to health and pollution issues as well as nuisance issues. City Staff has been quoted to be in opposition (within just the last two years) to any facilities of this kind. It is important to reflect on what has precipitated the changed in opinion. See the following for more details. https://communityimpact.com/dallas-fort-worth/mckinney/government/2020/03/02/city-starts-process-to-shut-down-two-mckinney-concrete-plants/ We are concerned with the proximity of this proposed facility to the Lavon/Wilson Creek watershed and the many toxic chemicals that will, inevitably, run off. These chemicals will harm the environments through which they travel, their wildlife inhabitants, and, ultimately, end up in our drinking water supply. The proposed location actually even has a marked tributary of Wilson Creek located directly adjacent to the property. The City attempted to push through a similar plan for a nearby location last fall; however, when given a chance to fully express their voice in the matter, the voters overwhelmingly turned it down. Have the voters have changed their mind? There are many more reasons to be opposed to this plan, but this is a preliminary list.Read more
