Stop Shell from destroying polar bear homes

This petition had 18,651 supporters

The Alaskan Arctic is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears, walruses, and other iconic species. But the wild home for these amazing species is vanishing with terrifying speed from the effects of climate change and oil drilling. 

And right now, Shell is trying to get permission from the to drill in the Arctic as soon as next year – putting the lives of polar bears, walruses and more at risk of deadly oil spills. Just one misstep by Shell could doom this fragile habitat forever.

Worse, when that oil is burned it would speed up the pace of climate change even more, wreaking havoc with extreme weather, rising seas, floods, and droughts. This would be devastating not only for the people and animals who live in the region - but for the rest of us too. 

Time is running out for the Arctic – and for the people and animals that depend on this environment for survival. Your voice is needed urgently to stop this destruction.
