Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and wanted to share info with everyone about Save Our Skins, a new Earthjustice campaign. I sent a message to the moderator about it and she said it would be ok to post – so I hope you all don't mind! :)

The Save Our Skins campaign was created to combat Congressional plans that will greatly affect the wilderness and endangered species. It passes the soapbox to the animals themselves - each animal uses a Twitter account to narrate their stories! Check out mama Polar Bear as she works around the clock to provide for her cubs despite melting glaciers and shrinking food supplies. Whew - can't a mom catch a break?!

Follow the Polar Bear and her friends Gray Wolf and Salmon. All three are resilient creatures who did not survive this long just to have politicians put their existence up for a vote. Please help us get the word out about this vital issue by sending a letter to Senators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell. Earthjustice aims to send 37,000 letters telling Congress that we oppose these attacks on the ESA, and we need you to help us reach our goal! These animals deserve to be on this earth as much as the rest of us: extinction is not an option. Check out more info at our Social Media Release, and feel free to share the news right away via Twitter – click here!

I'm curious to hear your thoughts! Which animal do you most identify with? Are there any other endangered species that you'd like to see extra attention called to?

Thanks for the feedback, Laur18! I appreciate the eyes you've given to this campaign...and I know some furry friends who do, too! ;)
