Ask Canada to Stop Hunting the Endangered Polar Bear

Please sign and share this petition worldwide on all media sites in an effort to ask Canada to put an end to hunting polar bears. They are on the endangered lists, even more so these days with global warming and loss of habitat, and Canada is one of the few places that still hunts them for their skins and other body parts. Let us ban together to say "Canada, Stop Hunting and Killing Polar Bears!"

Canada is the only country where polar bears are still hunted and killed in order to supply the world with their skin, claws, skulls, teeth and more! Despite the fact that the polar bear is an endangered species, Canada is only considering the profits gained from killing and selling these beautiful animals.

Other countries have concerns as to whether the killing of polar bears from vulnerable populations may be detrimental to the species. Their concerns are well founded. Some foreign countries will not allow imports of polar bear hunts from a couple of the Canadian polar bear populations! The United States' listing of polar bears under the Endangered Species Act in 2008 bans all commercial and trophy imports from Canada into the United States.

Either way, continual hunting and killing of the polar bear in Canada is affecting its existence and extinction.  Records show that climate change is harming polar bears in addition to the killing of the polar bears. Canada has a lot to answer for and the United States and Russia — strong advocates for polar bears at CITES — must continue pushing for greater polar bear protections through the review process, demanding that any trade is not detrimental to the survival of polar bear populations threatened with extinction from climate change.

We have to ask Canada; stop hunting and killing this beautiful, endangered species of animal, the Polar Bear. Please sign and share this petition worldwide on all media sites in an effort to ask Canada to put an end to hunting polar bears. They are on the endangered lists, even more so these days with global warming and loss of habitat, and Canada is one of the few places that still hunts them for their skins and other body parts. Let us ban together to say "Canada, Stop Hunting and Killing Polar Bears!"

 

Canadian Department of the Environment and Wildlife - You are a main country known for the hunting and killing of the nearly endangered polar bear. Along with the effects of the global warming and climate changes that infringes on the habitat of the polar bear, allowing them to be hunted and killed will lead to the extinction of this beautiful animal. "Canada, Please Stop Hunting and Killing Polar Bears!"
