Stop International Trade in Polar Bear Parts

Stop International Trade in Polar Bear Parts
Polar bears
WASHINGTON (rushPRnews) 02/01/10 — Target: Canadian Government and Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Polar bears are already struggling to survive in the face of global warming. Warmer temperatures mean less seasonal sea ice, making it harder to find food and literally melting away their homes.

But polar bears are also being threatened by the demand from collectors in some countries for polar bear skin rugs, claws, skulls and other parts of the animal to decorate their homes. To combat this trade, the United States proposed to increase the protection of bears through CITES, an international agreement that regulates trade of endangered wildlife.

But Canada, home to 60 percent of the world's polar bears, needs to sign on for the agreement to be effective. In March representatives from 175 countries will meet in Qatar to vote on strengthening protections for the bears. Canada's support would help save hundreds of polar bears each year.

Tell Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his government to support ending the international commercial trade on polar bear products.
