"Right now, Defenders of Wildlife and our allies are engaged in an all-out effort to secure a wilderness recommendation for the sensitive coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge the most important onshore denning habitat for America’s threatened polar bears.
A wilderness recommendation would bring us one step closer to…
* Ensure that no frightened polar bear mother abandons her cubs due to the noise and disruption that comes from drilling activities;
* Limit the pollution and potential oil and gas spills that have been an all-too-common occurrence where Big Oil’s drills have made their way to the Arctic; and
* Stop harmful drilling and the roads and development that comes with it from being carved across the crown jewel of America’s National Wildlife Refuge System.
Submit your comments now and help protect our polar bears and other precious wildlife that make their homes in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge."
