Dear Jill Robinson,
My name is Alice Margaret Dickman and I am a student at The University of Sydney.
I have long been an advocate for the Animals Asia Foundation (AAF), the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), Greenpeace and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS). My father, who is a Professor in Ecology (also at The University of Sydney), brought me up to have an awareness of, and respect for, the environment. As the human population continues to grow, more and more animals are in danger of losing their habitat and joining those that have already become extinct. While large scale issues, such as land-clearing, logging and global warming are of major concern to me, I am also anxious for the welfare of individual animals.
This is my third petition regarding the plight of bears. I hope that it lends some support to the cause.
Thank you for your time.
Alice Margaret Dickman
