Polar Bear SOS

Tell the Bush Administration to protect polar bears and their critical habitat

Polar bears are completely dependent on Arctic sea ice to survive, but 80 percent of that ice could be gone in 20 years and all of it by 2040. Polar bears are already suffering the effects: birth rates are falling, fewer cubs are surviving, and more bears are drowning. The Bush Administration's proposal to list the polar bear as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act is a crucial first step toward ensuring a future for these magnificent Arctic creatures. Yet the administration's proposal does not designate "critical habitat" for protection, even though melting habitat from global warming is the main threat to the polar bear's survival. 

Submit your Official Citizen Comment urging the Fish and Wildlife Service to finalize the listing of the polar bear and designate its critical habitat.

Misery

Our cat Whisper passed away yesterday..Needless to say we are heartbroken.  She's been my faithful companion for a month shy of 17years (& of course Tony's as well for the last 15).  She slept by me every night and followed me around non-stop even when her arthritis didn't want her to.  She had an embolism yesterday that paralyzed her back legs.  We didn't allow her to be in any pain but did everything we could to save her.  I'm having an especially hard time with it right now, but I know it will get better.
