Bear With Me

I always like a bit of good news in my inbox, especially on a rainy, October Monday (rain on a Monday; how is that fair?) And even more so when the good news involves helping, protecting, or saving animals. P.S. I also love the cute animal videos so please keep 'em coming!

So I was thrilled when I saw an email from the NRDC announcing that the Obama administration has agreed to support an upgrade in international protection for polar bears. Hurray to all the conservationists, NRDC members and online activists who signed the petition (over 50,000 of you.) This is another important step in helping to end trophy hunting and to stop the global trade in polar bear body parts.

Let’s hear it for the bears.
