Why does Sarah Palin want polar bears dead?

Why does Sarah Palin want polar bears dead?

By SOP newswire2

Without decisive action, America`s polar bears could face extinction in the wild by the end of the century.

Yet, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is fighting tooth and nail to remove even more vital protections for these majestic animals. In April, she secured $1.25 million that will help pay for her legal efforts to fight federal protections for polar bears and the rare Cook Inlet beluga whale. [1]

Please help save polar bears from Governor Palin`s deadly assault with your compassionate donation of $25.00, $50.00, $100.00 or another amount to help support our Polar Bear Defense Fund. Your support is critical in our fight in Congress, in the courts and in the media to save the lives of polar bears and other wildlife.

Most know about Governor Palin`s cruel aerial slaughter of wolves. Now Palin has polar bears in her cross hairs.

  • Palin is actually fighting in court to block life-saving protections for America`s polar bears. [2] Her lawsuit could derail efforts to save our polar bears from global warming, habitat loss, trophy hunting and other dire threats.
  • Palin buried findings from her own scientists to silence efforts to address global warming that is already causing polar bears to die from starvation. [3] 
  • Palin is helping Big Oil push for more toxic drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Chukchi Sea, vital habitat for these arctic ice kings. [4]

Help us save polar bears from Palin`s assault. Please donate now to support our Polar Bear Defense Fund and expand our effective Eye on Palin Campaign.

Your support for our efforts is all the more important in the wake of Interior Secretary Salazar`s outrageous decision last week to let stand a Bush administration regulation that will limit protections for polar bears threatened by global warming.

Your contribution today will help us fight Palin in court and ensure that polar bears get the protection they deserve, lobby Congress to pass legislation to reduce global warming that is melting the sea ice that polar bears need to survive and help polar bears adapt to a warming world, oppose Palin and Big Oil`s campaign for more destructive drilling in sensitive polar bear habitat, highlight the governor`s anti-polar bear positions in the media and much, much more.

To stop Governor Palin`s latest assault on polar bears and counter the $1.25 million that her legislature has approved to help derail efforts to save these amazing animals, we need to raise at least $75,000 by May 15th. Will you help?

We can`t let these wondrous bears fall victim to Governor Sarah Palin`s assault. Please donate whatever you can afford today to support our Polar Bear Defense Fund.
