The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to undo protections on habitat that critically imperiled polar bears in the Southern Beaufort Sea population need to survive.
The reason? Oil companies want to move in and start developing on protected lands – and they’re not letting the threat of killing off these polar bears get in the way of their profits.
The BLM has already acknowledged in its own draft environmental impact statement that oil and gas companies cannot completely eliminate the negative impact their development will inflict on polar bears.
Alaska’s wildlife is worth more to Americans than pleasing Big Oil shareholders. Tell the BLM today: Do your duty and protect our wildlife!
