Protect Polar Bears From Global Warming

Deadline: 4/9/2007

U.S. activists: Help protect polar bears from the impacts of global warming by endorsing a proposal to list them as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act.

Being added to the Endangered Species list would give the bears important protections, such as prohibitions on killing, harming or otherwise “taking” the species.

The listing would require that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designate critical habitat for polar bears and would ensure that the federal government’s actions do not jeopardize the bears’ existence or adversely modify or destroy their critical habitat. The government also would need to prepare a recovery plan that specifies measures needed for the bears’ protection.

Write to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now to endorse adding the polar bear to the Endangered Species list.
