Please Sign This Petition on Snowmobiles

The noise and pollution caused by snowmobiles have caused tremendous harm to the wildlife of Yellowstone.

We only have 10 days to stop snowmobile quotas from INCREASING in Yellowstone National Park. We need a real outcry of public comments opposing this act! We at Care2 are aiming to get 30,000 comments, and right now we're halfway there. Please help us today.

All you need to do is send in one last public comment condemning snowmobiles in Yellowstone.

Sign this petition and we will submit the comment for you.[partner_userID]=636532710&sign[memberID]=636532710&sign[partnerID]=1 

Thanks to the tireless efforts of activists around the country, both the public and Congress recognize the devastating impacts snowmobiles have in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. Unfortunately the battle is not yet over.

It has been more than two years since the Bush administration told us that they intended to "reexamine" the original Park Service study and decision to replace noisy, polluting snowmobiles with park-friendly, multi-passenger snowcoaches. Now the new rule will continue to allow snowmobile use in Yellowstone, and we need your voice in this final public comment period.

During the public comment period for the Bush draft supplemental environmental impact statement, more than 360,000 people commented and 80% of those comments supported the original plan to ban snowmobiles. Congress heard these voices. An amendment to ban snowmobiles from Yellowstone in the House lost by virtue of a tie (210-210).

We need to demand protection for our first national park! Submit your official comment to the Park Service.

Thanks for your help!
