ABSTRACT
The article appeals the U.S. citizens to participate actively to protect polar bear habitat in the Mississippi Delta from extinction. It enlists four things which includes supporting the veto of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the project Yazoo Pumps, pressurizing representatives of the U.S. Congress to vote in favor of the National Landscape Conservation System Act, to include the Endangered Species Recovery Act in the final Farm Bill, and to show their consolidation for the cause. It urges people to pressurize U.S. Secretary of Interior Dirk Kempthorne to facilitate the inclusion of polar bear under the Endangered Species Act.
