Time is running out for Alaska's polar bears. According to government scientists, these magnificent animals could be extinct in less than 50 years - unless we act now to protect them and the Arctic ocean habitat they depend on for their survival.


Polar bears and their cubs are starving as the sea-ice platform from which they hunt shrinks away from the coastlines. With increasingly open Arctic waters, polar bears have been found drowning as they are unable to swim the greater distances to reach solid ice or land. U.S. government scientists estimate that by 2050, all of these magnificent creatures could be gone from Alaska. Unless we do something now.


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has an historic opportunity on January 8 to do the right thing: add the polar bear to the list of Endangered Species, and designate "critical habitat" necessary for the polar bear's survival in Arctic lands and waters. Please urge Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne to protect the polar bear and its habitat.
