Save the Polar Bears! Help Stop Global Warming

  • by: Nature Canada
  • target: Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada
Rising temperatures due to global warming are threatening the entire Arctic ecosystem. Warmer temperatures means less pack ice - ice that polar bears depend on for hunting.

As their natural habitat gets warmer and decreases in size, the end result is fewer polar bears. For the polar bear, an irreplaceable symbol of the Arctic, climate change could lead to extinction.
  • Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate as the rest of the world.
  • Since 1978, Arctic sea area ice has shrunk by more than 8% per decade.
  • Greenland's massive ice sheet holds enough melt water to raise sea level by approximately 23 feet (7 meters).
Polar bears are the world's largest land based predators, but despite being on top of the food chain, they face threats from climate change they cannot overcome - unless we do something about it.

How can you help STOP this before it's too late? Call on the Government of Canada to protect the polar bear's habitat and slow the effects of global warming in Canada's treasured Far North!
Dear Prime Minister Harper,

I am deeply concerned about climate change in the Arctic and the threat this poses to the polar bear.

Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world, and it is threatening to place the entire Arctic ecosystem in jeopardy. For the polar bear, an irreplaceable symbol of the Arctic, climate change could lead to their extinction.

The polar bear depends on sea ice to survive, hunting for seal until the ice disappears every summer. As climate warming reduces the extent of the pack ice, the polar bear loses precious hunting time, and the number of polar bears declines.

I call on the Government of Canada to protect the polar bear's habitat and slow the effects of global warming in Canada's treasured Far North.

I call on the Government of Canada to take the lead in protecting our natural heritage. We must provide international leadership in the battle against global warming

I call on the Government of Canada to establish strong regulations concerning access to and removal of natural resources from within Canada's North. Oil and gas development should not come at the expense of our nation's wildlife.

I call on the Government of Canada to maintain essential habitat for all Arctic wildlife, and ensure that Canadian communities in our North are not disrupted by climate change.
