Tell Congress to Permanently Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    1. Sponsored by

      The Wilderness Society

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the designation of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a world-renowned area with some of America's most spectacular wildlife.

Grizzlies, caribou, wolves and muskoxen are just a few of the more than 200 wildlife species that rely on the Refuge for their habitat. The Coastal Plain of the Refuge is also the most significant on-shore polar bear denning habitat in the U.S., all the more important as global warming melts the sea ice that polar bears depend on.

To ensure that the Refuge remains forever wild, we need your help.  Please ask your member of Congress to co-sponsor H.R. 39, legislation currently pending that will guarantee the future protection of the Refuge - for the wildlife and for future generations of Americans.
