Protect Arctic Wildlife from Unregulated Shipping

2 posts in this topic

Sea ice in the Arctic is disappearing as global

warming causes climate change. Less ice will extend the

shipping season, putting marine animals into more

frequent contact with ships while they migrate.

Demand stricter shipping regulations to protect Arctic

wildlife! >>

More shipping will also introduce invasive species

and increase the risk of oil spills. Who's in danger?

Beluga whales will be disturbed in the Bering Strait

between Alaska and Russia where they share a narrow

corridor with ships. Polar bear cubs and seal pups are also

in particular danger from oil spills.

In our fight against global warming, we need to take

a preventative approach. Reducing the effects of

climate change will not happen overnight, so in the

meantime, we must adjust to the hazardous conditions

that put our most valuable wildlife in danger.

Urge Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to impose

stricter shipping regulations in the Arctic >>

Thank you for take action to protect polar bear cubs

and other marine animals in our Arctic environments.

Best,
