To protect wildlife is not only vital for the healthy functioning of our eco-system as a whole, but also a duty that we humankind should not shy away. The main reason for the worsening situation on the wellbeing of wild animals is the environmental damage caused by our human activities. For example, with the rapid pace of urbanization in China, the habitat of the South China tigers has been severely damaged and the number of this kind of tiger has been declining and near to extinction. In addition, the rise of the market needs for some animal parts such as leopard skins and shark fins lead to large scale of indiscriminate hunting and killing of these creatures for business profits.
I want to be a part of this renewed effort and use my natural abilities as a communicator to push back against the rather formidable forces behind the anti-environmentalist movement. I sincerely hope you will consider supporting this non-traditional avenue towards global sustainability and conservation. I have already been accepted to one of the most prestigious communications undergraduate programs in the country and I plan to minor in environmental studies . In addition, I maintain a relationship with my former supervisors at Save the Manatee and Sea World, who will be invaluable resources for finding employment upon graduation. I thank the committee for thinking outside the box in considering my application.
