Come support polar bears on March 5 at a public hearing in DC!

The Fish and Wildlife Service is planning three public hearings on the proposal to list the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act, but only one hearing is scheduled outside of Alaska. Attending is a great way to show your support, and gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard publicly. Plus, you may spot a polar bear or two . . .

The hearing is from 6:00-9:00 PM (but please come early!), at:

Department of the Interior
Sidney Yates Auditorium
1849 C St. NW.Washington, DC

We need a big crowd in support of protecting polar bears at risk from melting sea ice. Please bring photo ID and any prepared remarks if you would like to speak. Hope to see you there!
