Petition to Save the Polar Bear

Polar bears are in real trouble. These iconic creatures of the arctic are seeing their frozen habitat rapidly disappear as the planet warms.

In response to a recent lawsuit filed by ESC member organizations, a federal judge has ordered the Department of Interior to reconsider it's 2008 decision to deny polar bears the full protection of the Endangered Species Act.

Taking appropriate action today and listing polar bears as "endangered" will provide them with critical protections vital to their continued survival in their current habitats.

Please act now and sign our petition asking Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to grant polar bears full Endangered Species Act protections before it's too late.
