Signatures Needed To Urge Canada To Ban Trophy Hunters From Killing Polar Bears As Their Numbers Continue To Decline

The remaining 25,000 polar bears are losing their habitat as the sea ice melts. Oil drilling, human encroachment, and other threats also play a role in their decline. In fact, in 2015, polar bears were designated “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List. The classification indicates that the species is in decline and it’s supposed to serve as a wake-up call for governments to take action. Unfortunately, not all of them are listening.

Canada, where the majority of the world’s polar bears live, still allows people to hunt them for so-called “sport.” 

Hunting companies advertise extreme hunting trips to Canada’s Arctic to hunt the Earth’s largest land predator. For around $45,000 people can sadly book a 12-day excursion to track and hunt a polar bear.

In recent years, more than 5,000 polar bears have been killed.

Normally, Canada allows the Inuit indigenous people the right to hunt polar bears, as they claim that it is a part of their cultural tradition, but some Inuits are selling their licenses to the highest bidder, as well as to hunters from all over the world.

This is unacceptable. Selling hunting permits to the highest bidder is not a part of ones culture, it is cruelty and greed. As polar bears fight for survival, Canada has a duty to protect them, they shouldn’t be handing out licenses to kill them.
