Russia has had full ban on Polar Bear hunting for a long time. Looks like the USA needs to follow suit……
MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) – The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is urging the U.S. to follow Russia’s conservation efforts to save the polar bear, the regional program director for WWF Russia said on Tuesday.
This Thursday is a deadline set by a federal judge in Alaska for George Bush’s administration to decide whether polar bears should be given the status of a species endangered by global warming.
“Over 50 years ago a full ban on polar bear hunting was introduced in Russia, which has approximately 30% of the global polar bear population,” Viktor Nikifirov, said.
If we don’t we will not have Polar Bears one day. Just a thought…..
