In Hoot, Roy, Beatrice, and Mullet Fingers work to protect the endangered Burrowing Owls. Choose an issue you feel strongly about, like recycling, pollution, or coastal and marine issues such as soil erosion as the subject for your letter.


First: Research Your Cause
Write to an organization that you trust to get more information or learn how you can help.

Here are some places to start:
The Environmental Protection Agency: Environmental Kids Club
The Ocean Conservancy: Ocean Issues
Save the Manatee Club
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Endangered Animals Kids Corner
National Wildlife Federation

Second: Pick Your Audience
Write to a politician and ask them to support you in making a change. Other good candidates for your letters include company presidents, school board officials, and local newspapers.
