PROTECT POLAR BEARS BY SIGNING FOR HUMANE SOCIETY EFFORTS
ALSO FOR THE POLAR BEARS
2 years ago

Globally, human hunters kill 1,000 polar bears or more every year. So-called sport hunters pay up to $60,000 (Canadian dollars) just to shoot one of these magnificent animals. These hunters target the largest, most reproductively viable bears, leaving it difficult for the survivors to find suitable mates in the vastness of their ice habitat.

Polar bears already face the threat of extinction from climate change, making the loss of each animal that much more precious and that much more significant. The Canadian government not only permits polar bears to be killed by the hundreds every year, they are also increasing quotas in the face of population decline.

The irresponsible killing of this threatened species must be stopped -- now!
