To Whom it May Concern,
Do you want to help a very cute animal? Well the cute animal is called Snow Leopards, which look pretty cute, but the baby ones are VERY cute and I bet you would LOVE it. So if you have some extra money that would be helpful because the snow leopards need your help. I will tell you why you should donate money for the Snow Leopards.
Snow Leopards are amazing, and they live in the mountains of Central Asia and China. They are endangered, and there are only 4,000 left in the wild. Snow Leopards have long thick off-white fur dotted with dark spots. They also have really long tails. They are 2 feet tall at the shoulder; their bodies are 3-4 feet long. They are really good climbers and runners. They also jump really far. These are big cats that have a muscular body. I also learned from the Snow Leopard Conservancy that they do not roar, and cubs don’t open their eyes until they are 7 days old.
I did some research on the GIV and WWF websites and discovered why it is import to save endangered species. Snow Leopards are important because if they were extinct then other animals they eat will eat all the grass, and the rest of the animals who eat grass won’t have enough to eat. Also the Tibetans use the grass for medicine so that’s why we should save Snow Leopards. This sentence I wrote came from WWF website. “If one species is gone then the whole ecosystem balance is off.” Humans are causing animals to go extinct, and if that continues, we might not have good air, clean water, and good soil. “Extinction of species could affect humans too, but if we work together soon, we will have good ecosystems again.” This sentence I wrote came from GVI USA website.
Our class has been talking with a scientist named Charlotte. She told us the reasons why it is important to save Snow Leopards, and I am about to tell you what Charlotte told us. The first reason is Snow Leopards are at the top of the food chain. If they are gone, there will be too many of the animals they eat. There won’t be enough grass for animals to eat. The second reason is things we do to help Snow Leopards could help other animals too. The third reason is Snow Leopards get people talking about helping endangered species. The fourth reason is the Snow Leopards are part of the Tibetan’s culture, and if they were gone, the Tibetans would be sad. Also, all the locals who make money photographing them would be out of a job, and they will be poor.
I hope you’re interested in saving Snow Leopards. I will tell you another reason why Snow Leopards are dying and it is important to save them. It is because humans cause climate change and then the ecosystem is messed up. Scientists like Charlotte find a way to help the ecosystem.
I really hope this letter made you interested into Snow Leopards. I hope you would like to donate to adopt a Snow Leopard like I did.
