Polar Bears on Thin Ice: They Need Protection Now

Americans understand that global warming isn’t just a future problem. The current threat to polar bears, which find their habitat literally melting away, is a clear example of the need to face global warming today.

Dramatically rising temperatures in the Arctic are melting the sea ice where polar bears live, hunt, and breed, putting the future of this majestic predator in jeopardy. The Fish and Wildlife Service has recently proposed granting much needed protections for the polar bear by listing them as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act, but the agency wants to hear from you first.

Please send a letter today in support of strong protections for polar bears struggling to survive in a vanishing habitat, and ask the administration to take immediate action to fight global warming today.
