Subject: Arctic Drilling Threatens Seals
Keep oil out of Arctic waters.
Dear Liz,
Arctic Oil Drilling is Deadly for Seals
Oil companies are clamoring to start drilling in Arctic seas, threatening seals' homes and their lives. Spilled oil on seals' fur would remove their power of insulation and they could freeze to death. Inhaled oil and toxic fumes could keep seals from breathing properly, leading to painful and slow deaths.
Help us reach our goal of 20,000 signatures – take action NOW to save seals from oil drills »
