At 14 years old, Josh Crow is leading a project to help save wildlife around the world. Working with One World Conservation he's reaching out to youth between the ages of 6 and 17 years to write letters to world leaders in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization asking them to intercede on behalf of endangered wildlife.

Youth interested in joining Josh to help save wildlife can write letters or poetry, create art, or even make videos about any plant or animal currently on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List. Whether it's coral reefs or Asian elephants, youth should reflect on the plants and wildlife they are passionate about, perhaps even some that aren't as familiar to most people. Submissions should be polite and heartfelt and should include some scientific data to help persuade world leaders to take action.  

"I need your help to protect the world's wildlife. This is our world, our heritage. And we need to protect it," says Josh Crow.

Submissions should be sent to wildlifeambassadors@hotmail.com or P.O. Box 41731, Austin, Texas 78704. Once sent, they will become the property of One World Conservation.
