YOU Can Save Them Today

In September, the sea ice in the Arctic plummeted to its third lowest level in recorded history, following an alarming trend of decreasing summer sea ice caused by global warming. Polar bears can’t survive without their sea ice habitat, and they are quickly becoming some of the first and worst impacted victims of global warming—but they are just the canaries in the coal mine.
As polar bears are literally drowning, starving to death and disappearing before our eyes, politicians in Washington DC and Cancun, Mexico are debating what to do about it and when to do it.
But RIGHT NOW, we have a small window of opportunity to make a BIG difference. We have just three weeks to make sure polar bears are given full protection under the Endangered Species Act. We can’t do it without YOU.
Tell Interior Secretary Salazar to end Bush’s policies and upgrade protection of the polar bear from threatened to endangered.
Without protection, Alaska’s polar bears could be extinct within a few decades. We have to ACT NOW to save them.
Global warming threatens us all, and the time to debate that is over—it’s time to actually do something about it, and YOU can help today.
