Petition: Halt Environmental Rollbacks to Save Polar Bears from Extinction

Petition: Halt Environmental Rollbacks to Save Polar Bears from Extinction



One of the ways that many of us first became aware of and concerned about climate change was through a “Save the Polar Bears” poster that featured a scrawny, scared-looking on a tiny fragment of ice.

It was jarring and upsetting. Teachers would chime in that our grandchildren may never get to see a in real life. Sadly, that reality is steadily approaching.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Park promotes “conservation of biodiversity” and works “to promote a wider understanding of the natural world and inspire generations to support and protect the world around them.”

One of the residents was a 22-year-old named Victor. He was the oldest polar bear in the UK and lived at the wildlife park and fathered 13 cubs while in a conservation breeding program. Sadly, he passed away in August.

While he had a great impact on the conservation of his species, scientists believe that climate change could cause to go extinct by the end of the century. With higher temperatures and less sea ice, polar bears will not be able to get enough food and provide for their children.

This tragic possibility seems like something that every person in power should be working to avoid. Sadly, that is not the case.

During his presidency, has reversed nearly 100 environmental rules, many of which are especially harmful to animals.

He eliminated major rules concerning methane emissions; weakened the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), one of the nation’s most significant environmental laws; and suspended the enforcement of various environmental laws for companies due to coronavirus.

is even opening up the Arctic, including vital habitat, to oil drilling! Sign this to demand that and the EPA immediately halt the rollbacks of any more environmental rules or regulations immediately!
