On Friday, May 8, 2009, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar confirmed our worst fears for his tenure at the Interior Department: He announced that he will adopt Bush's polar bear extinction plan -- a "special rule" sharply limiting protections for the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act -- as his own.
Please sign the petition to ask Secretary Salazar to reconsider this damaging and disappointing decision
