Oil-drilling in the Artic Sea, where they make their home and find their food, is another potential nail in the coffin. And it will likely commence before the decision to list Polar Bears as endangered is officially made (they’ve been listed as threatened since late 2006, as a prelude to the listing decision). The rub is, drilling will start MERE DAYS before the decision. What bears need is a timeout.
And you can help! Not much is needed, just a few taps and clicks on your keyboard and mouse. If you think about it, it’s not just for the bears, it’s for us too.
