Polar Bear SOS

All of Alaska's Polar Bears could be gone by 2050.

I used to live in Alaska (before the oil boom) and the destruction of that state's wilderness is just heartwrenching to me, since I've seen what it was firsthand. I can't imagine how Alaska could be “the last frontier” without them. Well, it couldn't. The slogan would become bitterly nostalgic rather than proud.

Sign Polar Bear SOS Card to White House

Dear Rena,

Help give polar bears the gift of a future on our planet by signing this Holiday SOS Card to President Bush in support of their protection under the Endangered Species Act.

Please add your name to the card right now — because the polar bear can't wait. Within the next 21 days, the Bush Administration will either throw polar bears a lifeline — or condemn them to extinction.

Without urgently needed protection, all of Alaska's polar bears could be extinct in less than 50 years — along with two-thirds of the world's entire polar bear population.

But there is still hope if the Bush Administration takes action now.

That's why we are asking you — and everyone who cares about polar bears — to help us add 150,000 signatures to this Polar Bear Holiday SOS Card. When you do, you'll be sending President Bush a message loud and clear during this holiday season: Save Polar Bears Now!

It's easy: just add your name and click.

Together, we must create a nationwide show of support for polar bears in the next 21 days — because a North Pole without polar bears is simply unthinkable.

P.S. Keep in mind that the Bush Administration often saves its worst environmental decisions for the busy holiday season — hoping the American people won't notice. That's why we're asking you to sign the Holiday SOS Card now. Help put the White House on notice that we're watching — and expecting a decision in favor of polar bear protection.
