PLEASE Give the Polar Bears a Chance!
Global warming is melting the sea ice on which polar bears hunt and live. Therefore, polar bears are swimming farther and farther distances to reach solid ice. They are also drowning and dying of starvation in record numbers. Other polar bears, trapped on land hundreds of miles from solid ice, are being shot or dying of starvation.
The last Administration enacted regulations under Section 4(d) and Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act that reduced protection to polar bears and created an exemption for greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to an Act of Congress, the current Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, may revoke these illegal regulations .
The deadline for revocation is May 9, 2009. Approximately 5,000 signatures are needed on the petition at PolarBear.org to help convince Interior Secretary Salazar to revoke the illegal regulations before the deadline.
Take 5 minutes and take action. Sign the petition at PolarBear.org. Pass the word to your friends. The polar bear you save may be a mother.
