The proposed all-out ban is set to be discussed during a UN meeting in Thailand in March. Some groups support the effort, saying that the trade of bear products has a significant impact on polar bears' fight against extinction.

I am truly confused. Who cares at this point if it's climate change, that is having a greater effect on polar bears,or killing these animals for their "parts". BOTH are contributing to the polar bear's demise.
I can't understand why the WWF has not made a stand on not touching the polar bear at all. I have to missing something.
The first thing that I found bizarre was a UN meeting in Thailand over polar bears...how about a UN meeting in Thailand over their slaughtering of dogs.
