Protect Polar Bears in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
This petition had 17,498 supporters
The oil industry and its political allies are pushing harder than ever to industrialize the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a move that would destroy the most important onshore denning habitat for our nation’s threatened polar bears.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is for the first time considering making a formal recommendation to designate the Arctic Refuge’s coastal plain as wilderness.
A wilderness recommendation would bring us one step closer to protecting this important area, and the wildlife that depends on it, for good. But we need your help to send a strong message that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service can’t ignore.
Submit your comments now and help protect our polar bears and other precious wildlife that make their homes in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Please urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to safeguard the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by recommending a wilderness designation for the coastal plain.
