Dear James,
 
As news becomes ever more grim for polar bears, we finally have a
chance to permanently safeguard the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge —
one of the most important habitats they have left.
 
Write your elected officials today and urge them to support the
Udall-Eisenhower Arctic Wilderness Act (H.R. 39), a bill that would
permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
 
 
In a report issued last week, the government’s top scientists
have painted a bleak picture: polar bears will likely disappear
entirely from Alaska within 50 short years due to a drastic decline in
Arctic sea ice.
 
To make matters worse, ExxonMobil and other big oil companies continue
to push for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — one of
the most important onshore denning habitats for America’s
remaining polar bears.
 
With around 400 crude oil and toxic spills each year, the Prudhoe oil
field (just 30 miles west of the Arctic Refuge) is testament to the
destruction that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would face if Big
Oil were allowed in.
 
Now, we have a chance to safeguard this special place — permanently.
The Udall-Eisenhower Arctic Wilderness Act will make the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge forever off limits to Big Oil’s rigs —
and give America’s polar bears a fighting chance to survive.
 
Butto preserve the Arctic Refuge for good,  your elected
officials must hear from you.
 
Tell Congress to support this legislation. It is vital to protecting
our remaining polar bears and other Arctic wildlife.
 
 
In just a few short decades, America’s polar bears could be
gone. Our polar bears can’t wait — we must act now to preserve
what’s left of their quickly disappearing home.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Rodger Schlickeisen
