Obama: Grant Permanent Protection to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most important onshore denning habitats for America's struggling polar bears -- not to mention one of America's most spectacular landscapes.
But Big Oil wants to get its hands on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. If it does, disruptive exploration and drilling could drive polar bear mothers to abandon their cubs, leaving them to starve to death.
Don't let Big Oil destroy this pristine habitat that is integral to the survival of polar bears and other wildlife.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the wildlife refuge and we need to commemorate this historic occasion by giving permanent protection to the area and securing the safety of the wildlife -- including polar bears, wolves, arctic foxes, and caribou -- who call it home.
Tell President Obama to grant permanent protection to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
I urge you to permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas development. The Arctic Refuge is a unique national treasure that is one of the most important onshore denning habitats for our struggling polar bears. It is also home to America's largest caribou herd, arctic foxes and millions of migratory birds.
