Less than two weeks out from the presidential election, some people still don't know the truth about Sarah Palin’s reckless and cruel record when it comes to wildlife and the environment.

That's why Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund teamed up with activist-actress Ashley Judd to produce a new TV ad to set the record straight.

This powerful new ad about Palin's callous disregard for polar bears starts airing this week, but you can see it online now at:

http://actionfund.defenders.org/palinpolarbears

The next presidential administration may well determine whether or not these beloved bears disappear forever. Do we trust Governor Palin with that responsibility?

Even though our nation's leading scientists agree that polar bears could be extinct in America in less than 50 years if we don't take extreme measures to save them, as Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin covered up evidence from her own state scientists that showed the need for greater protections and sued the federal government when it moved to add polar bears to the Endangered Species list in an effort to protect the oil and gas industry.

It's a move that could lead to more polar bears dying of starvation, drowning and being killed by wealthy trophy hunters.

American voters deserve to know the truth. That's why I need you to not only watch our new ad, but also to help us spread the word about Palin's record.

1. Share this link -- http://actionfund.defenders.org/palinpolarbears -- and let your friends know about Palin's heartless disregard for our polar bears.

2. Donate to help air this TV ad in hotly-contested battleground states like Virginia, Colorado and Ohio. You can make a contribution of as little as $5 online at:

Thanks for caring about our polar bears and other wildlife and helping to spread the word!
