Your gift helps protect the planet against global warming, defending the polar bears' Arctic habitat, one of our Earth's most fragile natural treasures.
The ground beneath the polar bears' feet is literally disappearing as the polar ice caps melt away. With summers lasting longer than they did 20 years ago, the winters are delayed. For every week that this happens, a female polar bear loses at least 20 pounds of body fat - the vital layer of protection she needs to nourish a bear cub. Global warming threatens the polar bears' home and their ability to nurture their young.
This priceless offering helps protect the planet by supporting the Natural Resource Defense Council's legal battle to fight global warming, so that both polar bears and people will continue to enjoy the sanctuary of our shared home.
