STOP OIL SPILLS

STOP OIL SPILLS

A new Arctic oil rush has begun. Reckless companies like Shell, Gazprom, Statoil, and Exxon want to invade the fragile Arctic, risking a devastating oil spill for only three years worth of oil.

If oil companies are allowed to drill in one of the world's most extreme, isolated, and unpredictable environments, a deadly oil spill is not a question of if - but when. Toxic oil could leak unchecked beneath the ice for years, polluting the lands and livelihoods of people who have called the Arctic home for millennia.

An oil spill would have a catastrophic, long-term impact on the entire Arctic ecosystem. Act now to stop an oil spill in the Arctic before it starts.

DEFEND POLAR BEARS

DEFEND POLAR BEARS

The Arctic is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears to blubbery walruses and mysterious narwhals. But all Arctic species depend on sea ice to survive, and the ice is vanishing with terrifying speed.

Without sea ice to hunt, rest, and breed, the very survival of polar bears and other wildlife is under threat. Mother polar bears, weak and starving, have trouble reproducing. Their cubs must fight the odds to survive into adulthood.

Unless we take action soon, experts warn that polar bears could disappear completely from the Arctic in the next 100 years. Act now to protect their home.

SAVE OUR PLANET

SAVE OUR PLANET

The Arctic is the world's air conditioner, but amid global climate change it's warming twice as fast as the rest of the world. In the last 30 years 75% of the summer sea ice volume has disappeared.

The ice at the top of the world reflects much of the sun’s heat back into space and keeps our whole planet cool, stabilizing the weather systems that we depend on to grow our food.

But because of dirty fossil fuel energy, the Arctic could soon be completely ice-free in summer. Icemelt would contribute to rising sea levels, disrupt global weather patterns, and make warming happen faster. This would be devastating not only for the people and animals who live in the region - but for the rest of us too. Protecting the Arctic means protecting us all.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT SIGN NOW. SAVE THE ARCTIC

Ask world leaders to create a global sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole, and a ban on oil drilling and destructive fishing in Arctic waters.

Sign the petition to join the movement of millions who know that the Arctic affects all of us - and must be protected by us all.
