 Dear Readers, I am also passing on;
Thanks again for taking action and adding your name to our petition declaring the Arctic a global sanctuary.

Once we reach a million total signatures, we’re going to take your name, put it on a flag with the other names and place it at the bottom of the sea at the North Pole. But it’s going to take all of us working together to make that happen and protect the Arctic for all humanity.

That’s why we’ve created a game online where you can join together with people around the world to help save the Arctic. It’s called the Arctic Rising and I encourage you to check it out.

The idea is simple: You join one of five groups working to save the Arctic and then do everything you can to spread the word. There are prizes for the top people and all sorts of other fun things along the way. I think you’ll like it.

Join the Arctic Rising today and get started saving one of the last great wildernesses on earth.

The Arctic is under threat from all sides – climate change, oil drilling, overfishing, military build-up – and nothing less than the creation of a global sanctuary is going to save it.

I don’t just believe this is possible. I know it. Greenpeace achieved the very same thing back in the 1980’s when we won the creation of a global commons in Antarctica. Now this is our time.

Be part of the Arctic Rising, recruit your friends, spread the world and be part of saving the Arctic.

Thanks for all you do.
