Join the Day of Action to Save Arctic, Polar Bears

Polar bear

Join Center for Biological Diversity staff, Frostpaw and 15 other costumed polar bears on Thursday, Sept. 26 for a day of action for the Arctic.

America's Arctic is ground zero for climate change. The indicators are everywhere: Permafrost is melting, shorelines are washing away, and record low ice cover is forcing polar bears and other Arctic wildlife to struggle to survive.

To add insult to injury, Shell and other big oil companies want to begin drilling in the Arctic Ocean. This would release an additional 15.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere.

We're delivering the Center's petition to stop drilling in the Arctic Ocean to President Obama, and we need your help.
