Help Protect Polar Bears as Endangered

Polar bears are in trouble. The melting of the Arctic is killing them. Some are already starving and drowning. If global warming is allowed to continue, the Arctic will be entirely ice-free during the summer, dooming polar bears to extinction.

And as you may have seen in the news this past week, federal bureaucrats are illegally delaying a decision to protect the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act. They want 10 more weeks to make a decision. Meanwhile they’re fast-tracking Arctic oil drilling.

The Center for Biological Diversity and its allies have gone to court to force the administration to finalize the Endangered Species Act listing. But your help is needed. Polar bears require a massive groundswell of public support to show that people are watching and will not tolerate delays, denial, or political game-playing. A decision is imminent. Please sign this new petition asking the administration to make sure it’s the right one.
