Polar bear

Hi Everyaction,

Trump has set a price for auctioning off the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: $25 an acre.

That's how much it'll cost oil companies for the privilege of wiping out our pristine northern wilderness — home to polar bears who are just now beginning to den with newborn cubs.

We're in court to stop this disgusting plunder of nature.

Please support our work to keep drilling out of the Arctic by giving to the Saving Life on Earth Fund. Your donation today will be doubled.

Trump is hell-bent on rushing through oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He set a date of Jan. 6, at a record pace and without waiting for public input, to auction off oil leases there.

If this fire sale proceeds, polar bear cubs could soon be terrorized by massive seismic vehicles or see drilling rigs from their dens.

And once leases are sold, it will become much harder to keep this treasured landscape from turning into an oilfield.

Not only did Trump fast-track the lease sales, but he issued a draft permit to allow a company to harass polar bears while searching for oil in the refuge.

It will allow convoys of 45-ton thumper trucks, tractors and bulldozers to roll over fragile tundra all day, all night, for weeks at a time.

We filed for a preliminary injunction to block this activity — and we'll keep fighting to keep oil and gas wells out of the refuge.

The Arctic is not Trump's to sell to the highest bidder. This majestic landscape belongs to the American people — and must be protected to avoid worsening the extinction and climate crises.

We can't let the administration get away with ruining the Arctic refuge on its way out the door.

You can help us fight with a matched gift to the Saving Life on Earth Fund.

For the wild,
