Almost three-quarters of Australia's migratory and resident shorebirds have disappeared over the past 25 years:
There are views that humanity may wipe out all other currently living mammals by the end of this century:
With a little help, as little as 50 cents a month, even the most endangered of the remaining species can return from the brink of extinction.
If we show the will – Nature will find a way.
Thank you for taking the time to read about what you could do reverse this sad situation.
Exetel delivers technology derived services to end users as its method of existing as a commercial entity. There is little doubt that the human race has become the dominant species on this planet because of its abilities to use technology to overcome all ‘natural’ barriers and checks and balances to its continued expansion in both numbers and its expansion to every part of the planet’s land mass. In doing this we, as a species, have consigned to extinction more species of flora and fauna in our pursuit of our own existence and expansion than all other species that have ever existed, or currently exist, on this planet put together.
Exetel’s directors believe that one of the privileges of operating a commercial enterprise in Australia is to make our country a better place to live for all inhabitants. We do this by trying to provide technology services at lower prices than any other commercial entity that operates in our fields and marketplaces to Australia’s human inhabitants. Since Exetel started making some regular, but as yet not very large, profits we believe it is our obligation to allocate a portion of those profits to providing ‘services’ to those species who co-inhabit this country whose existence is being threatened by our species’ existence in Australia and our use of technology.
Exetel donates up to 33% of profits it receives from providing communication services to a number of projects that are administered by registered charities set up for such purposes:
This payment will be provided to the selected projects “on behalf of Exetel’s customers” but will in fact be paid using money that would otherwise have been allocated to shareholder’s profits. The payment of these donations will not increase any payment you have currently agreed to in selecting Exetel as your Wireless Broadband, ADSL1 or ADSL2 provider but by selecting Exetel as your service provider you will be assisting some of Australia’s most endangered species to have some chance of survival.
Hopefully, if you’re an Exetel customer or you plan to become an Exetel customer, Exetel is providing/will provide you with broadband services at a lower cost than you could obtain them from another commercial entity in your location. In the event that by buying services from Exetel you have allowed yourself to achieve some small saving perhaps you would like to consider making a small part of that saving available to the projects that Exetel's directors have chosen to support.
We appreciate that there are an enormous range of deserving causes to which you could already be donating your scarce ‘disposable’ financial resources and you may well not wish to be constrained by Exetel’s choices. However, please consider that 50 cents a month is not an amount that many, if any, charitable causes are able to accept (except via a collection tin process) while Exetel has a billing and debiting system that makes it possible to collect tiny amounts of money from tens of thousands of customers which could add up to a substantial amount that could ensure another Australian life form continues to exist.
Should you choose to make a contribution then you can do so for any amount of money and you can change that amount or stop contributing it at any time.
