Support for polar bear protections builds in Congress

On June 14, 36 U.S. representatives sent a letter urging the Fish and Wildlife Service to list the polar bear as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The best available science shows that the polar bear may go extinct in the next century as global warming melts its sea-ice habitat, and listing the bear will provide important protections to ensure this is not its fate.

Please take a moment to call or write a short note thanking Congressman Inslee for his leadership on the congressional letter in support of protecting the polar bear. With so many politicians willing to sell out the environment in favor of the industries that finance them, it is important that we show our appreciation of those representatives who stand up for America’s endangered wildlife and ecosystems. Even a single sentence thanking Congressman Inslee for his efforts for the polar bear would let him know you noticed and appreciate it.

Go show the man some love.
