The clock is ticking to COP 21: Polar bears need you now!

This petition had 7,970 supporters

In a world warmed by climate change, the polar bear's sea ice home is literally melting away. Without action, wild polar bears—the very symbol of the Arctic—could disappear. 

Climate change threatens polar bears, but the impacts reach far beyond polar bears and far beyond the Arctic. People are at risk, too, from rising sea levels, crop failures, and extreme weather events from droughts to floods.

The delegates at the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 21) have the power to save arctic sea ice—to protect a key element of our planet's life support system, one that affects us all.

The meetings start at the end of November! Please sign our petition today asking the world’s nations to create a plan for greenhouse gas reductions that are fast and deep enough to help polar bears—and, by extension, people. By signing, you’ll speak up for renewable energy, for efforts to stop deforestation, for a greener world.

You’ll help ensure a future for polar bears. And by ensuring a future for polar bears, you’ll help countless other species—including our own.
