Protect the Arctic to Save the Polar Bear

According to Greenpeace, right now there's a dangerous shadow looming over the pristine Arctic. The main cause for such incident is due to oil companies and politicians are plotting to carve up the icy North, extending their national territories and searching for drill sites.

Greenpeace mentioned their concern in which the Arctic ice is melting, uncovering oil reserves laid bare because of climate change. The very companies causing climate change and the melting of the Arctic ice are set to profit from it, even as they destroy precious habitats and endanger wildlife in the process. It’s a vicious circle. And it's not just oil drillers. Industrial fishing fleets are moving into the melting waters threatening the local communities who have fished there sustainably for thousands of years. 

As the way to raise concerns on the Arctic's habitats and environment, a campaign for an Arctic sanctuary and a ban on oil drilling and industrial fishing in Arctic waters has been organised by Greenpeace. You may click here to sign now , to protect the Arctic, home of the polar bear. 

More than 1.5 million supporters had been signed up for the campaign (as on 28 August 2012), in which a target of 2 million signup of supporters had been set by Greenpeace.
