“Polar bears -next oil covered species?”

Just wait the next pictures from Alaska could depict polar bears covered in oil.

They could be the next species to fall to oil greed and government blindness.

When you do not learn from past environmental errors like the Gulf of Mexico oil spill apparentely Salizar and the state of Alaska

want to take their chances by opening up part of the Arctic waters to oil drilling!

In lock-step with Bush administration policies already struck down by the courts, first Salazar opened up huge areas of polar bear habitat to

protect theri right to play and live free

offshore oil drilling — despite the devastating spill impacts we saw in the Gulf of Mexico — and then he refused to upgrade the polar bear’s legal status from “threatened” to “endangered.” Withholding full protection from the polar bear gives Salazar an excuse for not stopping fossil fuel pollution from coal-fired power plants that are driving the species extinct.
But with your generous support and our 20-plus years of winning life-saving results for endangered wildlife, the Center will take on Alaska and Salazar at the same time, saving the polar bear and its precious, disappearing habitat.

At the same time, the state of Alaska is already in court to strip federal protection from the polar bear, but last week it launched a new attack  on the bear’s habitat. It filed a legal notice to strike down the federal government’s designation of a 120-million-acre polar bear reserve along Alaska’s northern coast.
This is the largest imperiled species habitat reserve in history bigger than 48 of the 50 states  and protecting it is essential to the survival of the polar bear.
Your support is needed before the year’s end.

Together you and  the Center  for Biological Diversity we will take on Alaska and Salazar at the same time, saving the polar bear and its precious, disappearing habitat.
Alaska just took its brutal war against the polar bear to a new level.

The Center for Biological Diversity has just a few weeks to prepare to beat back Alaska’s new antiwildlife lawsuit, and we need to raise the funds now to do it. Please, help us save the polar bear and the largest habitat reserve in history:

Please donate today to our Endangered Species Action Fund together we can make a difference.
