Thank you Monika !
Agree Monika! Its all about money, and if the polar bear is extinct, well, lets go to the zoo where the survivors can be seen. Totally sick!
Hope I've signed everything. What wouldn't I give to make a dent in big industry. They just don't care what sort of a world they're going to leave to their children and grandchildren. Just so Long as they can make another fast buck. And all at the cost of the poor indigenous animals. Because that's just what they are - exactly the same as in America and Australia where the native Population were simply slaughtered or left to die for the sake of the "big White man". Sickening.
A Norwegian billionaire is planning to build a for-profit center that puts captive polar bears on display. Demand that he stop prioritizing profit over the welfare of these majestic creatures, and ensure they continue to live in their natural habitat.

Polar bear center plans raise growls
"A Norwegian billionaire's plans to create a polar bear center in his
native valley of Hallingdal in southern Norway has stirred growls of
protests from animal rights group NOAH. Its leader claims that polar
bears should remain in their natural habitat, not held in captivity to
be put on display for profit."

Polar bears are under attack from poachers and Big Oil companies. Nowhere do polar bears face more peril than in Canada, where polar bear skins and body parts are regularly sold on the market. Tell Canada it is time to protect this iconic species, before they are gone forever.
Already did a lot of these. Thanks for sharing.
The Polar Bear Seas, off the coast of Alaska, are home to a dizzying array of wildlife, including polar bears, grey whales and countless kinds of birds. Yet this spectacular ecosystem is under attack by Big Oil and Gas companies which are looking to exploit the environment for financial gain. Tell President Obama to stop the destruction of this wondrous place before it is too late.

Signed. How much more can our polar bears take? The polar bears are our "canary in the mine". We can't wait till it's too late. We have to stop global warming now.
Climate change driven by the burning of fossil fuels is wreaking havoc across the globe -- and proposed Arctic drilling, if it goes forward, will only make things worse.
Right now President Obama and his administration are considering allowing oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean -- including offering publicly owned drilling leases in the future. Polar bears that are already losing their sea-ice homes are also faced with the prospect of devastating oil spills.
Protecting the Arctic Ocean not only helps the wildlife and people of the Arctic, it is essential to preventing climate disaster.
Please take action swiftly: Tell President Obama to protect polar bears and the Arctic Ocean instead of approving any further offshore drilling in the region.
Signed! Thanks Monika....you are truly Amazing...it's so hard to keep up with you!

Tell Secretary Jewell to Close the Polar Bear Seas to Oil Drilling!
After a string of mishaps and blunders, Shell has just announced that it will not drill this summer in the Arctic. But the oil giant has reaffirmed its plans to drill there in the future — and the Obama Administration appears willing to let them. Tell new Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to put the Polar Bear Seas permanently off-limits to Big Oil!
Signed and shared.
This very interesting article reports on the Cites vote and interestingly how WWF voted with Canada against protection.
World Fails to Ban Trade in Polar Bear Parts
Earlier this month, a U.S. proposal, supported by Russia, to ban the international trade in polar bear parts was voted down at a meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. More than 100,000 BioGems Defenders had sent messages urging an upgrade in the international protection of polar bears. Despite widespread citizen support, the proposal failed to win a two-thirds majority, with strong opposition coming from Canada, which allows the killing of hundreds of polar bears each year. While the loss is a setback for polar bears -- scientists predict that more than half of them could be gone by 2050 -- the fight is far from over. NRDC will continue pursuing other means for ending the global trade in polar bear parts and protecting America's polar bears. (See In the News below). Learn more.
Shame on Canada and all the other shameful countries who voted against protection.
I am hearing that the vote went against Polar Bears at CITES. Will try to find out more later.
Thank you for all this. I now have written confirmation from my MP that the UK Government is going to do all it can to persuade the EU to vote with USA in the CITES meeting. I hope they publish a list of countries that won't comply but I hope that won't be necessary.

U.K. Supports Stronger Protections for Polar Bears
The United Kingdom has joined Russia in supporting a U.S. proposal -- championed by NRDC -- to ban the global trade in polar bear parts at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species next month. With the polar bear sliding toward extinction, it is unconscionable that Canada allows more than 400 bears to be killed each year. Other key European nations are still undecided -- and their votes could determine the polar bear's fate. Ask U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron to rally the European Union to vote for stronger polar bear protections.

This is a copy of the letter I sent to my MEPs
Dear John Bufton, Derek Vaughan, Kay Swinburne and Jill Evans,
I am writing to you in connection with the CITES Conference in March 2013. I would not wish there to be a repetition of what happened in 2010 relating to the protection of the polar bear. This animal needs strict protection and I cannot comprehend why in these days of global warming, there should be any question at all of strict protection for this iconic creature.
Trade in polar bear skins and body parts MUST be stopped. It is inexcusable that humans should feel any need whatsoever to conduct themselves in this destructive practice.
The United Kingdom MUST be at the forefront in persuading the EU representatives at the CITES Conference to vote in favour of strict protection and a ban on this heinous trade.
I would be grateful for your cooperation in ensuring that the vote goes in favour of the polar bear as this is the only acceptable outcome.
In all honesty I am shocked that there would be any possibility at all of the EU voting against.
If any person wants to copy and send to their MEPs feel free.

Please sign our appeal to representatives of the EU member states to vote in the CITES CITES Conference in March 2013 for the strict protection of the polar bear. Although scientists have calculated that the polar bear stock will go up to 2050 by 66% to be in Canada every year hundreds of polar bears killed for their fur. The U.S. request to ban the commercial international trade in polar bear skins. In 2010, the EU had failed a corresponding advance - that must not happen again! The following text is the EU representatives presented (in English):
Vote for the strict protection of polar bears!
If the current trend is not stopped, polar bears are still disappear this century of our planet. It depends on the EU Member States, to drive forward the protection of this species. Polar bears are not only affected by an unprecedented loss of habitat, they are also in the sights of Canadian hunters who trade in polar bear skins. I urge you to guarantee the protection that this keystone species need to survive,: Vote for an inclusion of the polar bear in the Appendix I of CITES!
The fate of the polar bear is in our hands. By inclusion of the species in Appendix I of CITES, we can trade in polar bear fur and other parts - and thus a major threat to their survival - finish. We need to give the polar bear the protection they need. We must not let them stand in the cold.
Thank you for your support on this important issue.
Done. I have copied the letter to David Cameron so that I will send to MEPS as well.
Done. June I love the little polar bear graphic.

Share your opinion Jan! Hunters want a trophy before he goes instinct and countries who support this cruel trade don't mind about the bears, they probably think that they'll survive in zoos!!
And when you see the very sad "no result" of Doha, you know that they give a sh** on climate change, extinction of species and threat to people on small Islands like Maledives. They don't care and they don't think about future generations.

Those fighting for animals everywhere are the only sane people on the planet. How unbelievably stupid does one have to be to be contributing to the extinction of a species? Who in their right minds would prefer to have a polar bear rug on the floor than see polar bears in the wild?

We've received word that the Senate could vote on the reprehensible "Sportsmen's Act of 2012" (S. 3525) this week. The bill absurdly grants trophy hunters the right to import the mounted heads and other pieces of polar bears they shot dead in the Arctic North. In April, we urged you to voice opposition to similar legislation in the House of Representatives. Today we implore you do so the same with S. 3525. We must do all we can to defeat this bill, which sets a dangerous precedent regarding the trophy hunting of imperiled species. Please write to your two U.S. senators today.
all done. thank you, mamabear.

Chicken raising has been growing in popularity among Montanans, but has led to more grizzly bear conflicts. Residents don’t know how to safely deter bears from chicken pens, often leading to the bears being killed. Montanans must be encouraged to install non-lethal electric fences in order to protect grizzly bears, chickens and humans alike.
Naomi,you've got that right.
they say 20 more years at most at this rate.
