INFORMATION / SAMPLE LETTER (use this for talking points only; write your own letter)

I'm dismayed that you have decided to adopt a Bush-era policy against using vital Endangered Species Act protections to save polar bears from global warming and Arctic oil development -- short-circuiting President Obama's pledge to follow a science-based approach to environmental protection.

The scientific evidence is overwhelming that rising temperatures could cause two-thirds of the world's polar bear populations, including all of Alaska's polar bears, to go extinct by 2050. Polar bears are already drowning and starving. In the face of this unfolding disaster, it is too late for half-measures and polluter exemptions.

It's not too late to withdraw this Bush-era plan. Please act now to close polluter loopholes and give the polar bear full-fledged endangered species protection to safeguard its habitat from global warming pollution, oil and gas development, and other threats.

The plight of the polar bear is urgent. We can still save this magnificent species, but the window for action is closing rapidly. Please act immediately to pull polar bears back from the brink of extinction.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
