Try thinking from another point a view, try a swift:

We are swifts. We are a Threatened Species At Risk that lives in Churchill Park at the edge of Cootes Paradise. We and 1,581 other species call Cootes Paradise home. We have lived here for ages, and we have shared our home with you. Please respect our home, and be careful when you visit to play. Because you have taken so much away from our home for pavement, what you have left us is not enough for all of us to survive. As a result, every other year one of our friends (the entire species) disappears from Cootes forever.* Could you please give a little of the park back to Cootes? Maybe around the edges? When you come to the park, please do not kill. Even the grass makes bugs. Bugs are yummy, and if we can’t catch enough fast enough our babies will starve. We need your help. We are worried that your Churchill Park Master Plan proposes more killing in the park. Since we do not have eMAIL, please contact our friend Joe at jminor@cogeco.ca if you have questions.

*Due to various forms of human encroachment, Cootes Paradise is suffering extirpations at a rate of 0.5 species/year.
