Tell Secretary Salazar to Protect Polar Bears: Strike Down Bush's Ruling


Tell Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to save the polar bear. Arctic sea ice habitat is rapidly melting away. If Bush’s 11th-hour special rule is not struck down, the polar bear is likely to be the first large mammal to go extinct due to global warming in the United States.

INFORMATION / SAMPLE LETTER (write your own letter using these talking points)

Dear Secretary Salazar:

I strongly oppose the Bush administration's illegal and illogical regulations under Section 4(d) of the Endangered Species Act, which reduces protections for polar bears and expressly bans federal agencies from examining the effect of greenhouse gas emissions on polar bears.

I request that you revoke this regulation immediately, within the 60-day window provided by Congress for its removal. The Endangered Species Act has a proven track record of success at reducing all threats to species, and it makes absolutely no sense, scientifically or legally, to exempt greenhouse gas emissions -- the number-one threat to the polar bear -- from this successful system.

I urge you to take this critically important step in restoring scientific integrity at the Department of Interior by rescinding Bush's illegal regulation reducing protections for polar bears.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
