Home to polar bears, Arctic fox, caribou, snowy owls, and nearly 200 other species, the vibrant Coastal Plain is considered the biological heart of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately, it has also been on Big Oil's "most wanted" list for years.
The Obama administration is on the verge of recommending a Wilderness designation that would protect the Coastal Plain. But now Interior Secretary Salazar has announced he's retiring in March and he may not finalize the plan in time!
Please hurry! Our polar bears are on thin ice. Cubs are drowning on marathon swims through warming oceans, more bears are starving as melting sea ice makes seals harder to catch, and oil drilling is driving bears from their dens.
Fill out the fields below to ask Sec. Salazar to protect these precious creatures before he retires this month.
While all the organizations participating in the Save Our Environment Action Center share the common goal of
protecting the environment, individual groups can, and sometimes do, differ in their approaches to specific issues.
