Act Now To Help Polar Bears

As you must know by now, polar bears are increasingly at risk of extinction due to the melting of Arctic sea ice caused by global warming. Leading American scientists say placing the polar bear on the federal Endangered Species list is key to its survival.

The Bush Administration has until May 15th to decide if it will list the polar bear as endangered, so we must tell them to do so, now! As beings on this plant, we have a responsibility to protect these magnificent creatures.

Please sign the We Campaign's petition to tell Secretary of Interior Dirk Kempthorne that the polar bear, and its fragile Arctic habitat, requires protection from the effects of global warming. If the Secretary listens to the scientists, the polar bear will gain important protections. Additionally, federal agencies will need to consider how their future activities could affect the species -- and that could be an important step in leading the government to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
