Protect Polar Bears From Seismic Testing in the Arctic Refuge

The administration is fast-tracking drilling operations in the Arctic — and polar bears will pay.

Within weeks heavy trucks could be crushing polar bear dens in the Arctic Wildlife National Refuge. The trucks could also scare mother polar bears into abandoning their dens, leaving their cubs to perish and sending the species into further decline.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has just given draft approval for a company to harass polar bears while searching for oil in the area this winter.

Act now to tell the Service this permit should be denied.

This is part of Trump's all-out attack on the refuge. The administration is fast-tracking lease sales for oil and drilling there.

Now it's permitting seismic exploration, which is highly destructive to lands and wildlife. The permit would allow convoys of massive trucks, tractors and bulldozers to roll over fragile tundra 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months on end. These activities will not only irreparably scar the landscape — they will scare off polar bears.

We must resist this reckless and cruel proposal and stop the Trump administration from turning the Arctic Refuge into an oilfield on its way out the door.

Stand up for the Arctic Refuge, polar bears and our climate by opposing this project now.
