Help Protect the Polar Bears!

he is sticking his tounge out at Bush!- for the Grateful Web

The next few weeks may well be our single best chance to stave off an unthinkable future: a world without polar bears.

To avert that tragedy, NRDC must be fully prepared - in the midst of this holiday season - to launch swift courtroom action on behalf of this imperiled species.

That's why we're asking you to make an instant holiday donation - because the next 19 days are critical to the polar bear's very survival: http://www.nrdconline.org/ct/a1AN6491fu9x/

Any day now, the Bush Administration will make its final decision about whether to protect the bear and its critical habitat under the Endangered Species Act.

No matter what the Administration decides, NRDC must be ready to fight a major legal battle:

If the Administration says NO to polar bear protection, then NRDC will immediately challenge that disastrous decision in federal court.

But even if the Administration says YES to polar bear protection, their decision will almost certainly fail to safeguard the bear's "critical habitat" against the global warming pollution that is destroying it. That means NRDC will have to fight in court to win those safeguards for the polar bear's habitat.

I'm sure you'll agree - with the future of polar bears in the hands of the anti-wildlife Bush Administration, we must be ready to respond instantly during this holiday season.

So please, click here to make your tax-deductible holiday donation right now so NRDC can take immediate courtroom action for the sake of polar bear survival: http://www.nrdconline.org/ct/a1AN6491fu9x/

We're counting on your swift and generous support - because delay could be fatal to the polar bear.

With your help, NRDC will be working through the holidays to give the polar bear a fighting chance against extinction.
