A wild polar bear in the Arctic is a majestic creature–commanding respect with its beauty and ferocity. But global warming is threatening this bear’s very existence.

Polar bears in the southern area of their range are literally starving to death as the ice they depend on for hunting seals melts sooner in the spring and freezes later in the fall each year. Unless we act, polar bears could easily disappear from the Hudson Bay within our lifetime.

Polar bears are starving–take action to protect them today.

Right now, we have a chance to fight for these magnificent bears. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is about to propose rules to limit pollution from coal-fired power plants, which are the largest source of carbon pollution in the U.S. By reducing the pollution they emit, we can make a substantial impact in the fight for polar bears.

But, even as polar bears go hungry from the impacts of climate change, greedy corporate polluters are fighting to keep dumping unlimited carbon pollution into our air.

Don’t let corporate pollution starve polar bears to extinction–send this message today.

For thousands of years, polar bears have made the Arctic their home. The expansive ice and plentiful seal populations have shaped this species. In just four decades, the number of ice-free days polar bears face in the western Hudson Bay has grown by 40 days in just the last 40 years to a terrifying 160 days in 2010. That’s 160 days without access to food, while they are nursing young.

Polar bears do have hope of surviving into the next century if we act now to reduce one of the greatest emitters of the carbon pollution that is melting their ice.

Help create a better future for polar bears–take action to slow the pace of global warming.
