A message to all members of Ursa Freedom Project

In just a few weeks, wealthy trophy hunters on snowmobiles -- who pay up to $30,000 per hunt -- will start chasing down polar bears in Canada, shooting them, and bringing home their lifeless bodies as decorations for their trophy rooms.

The polar bear is perched on the brink of extinction, and yet mindless people still hunt them and reckless governments still allow the hunts. If people don't rise up to stop the hunts, the slaughter will continue, and polar bear populations will keep diminishing until the last polar bear vanishes from earth. Extinction is forever.

We have a very short window of time to build international support and win a showdown vote in March for stronger polar bear protections under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species -- or CITES.

A few short minutes of your time is a matter of life and death for the majestic polar bear.

Support NRDC in its efforts to end the trade in polar bears.

Support the Humane Society of the U.S. and learn what you can do to save polar bears.
