Petition · Justin Trudeau: PM Trudeau: Ban Trophy Hunting of Polar Bears · Change.org

Günter Singer started this petition to Prime Minister of Canada/Premier ministre du Canada Justin Trudeau

Dear Prime Minister,

Polar bears are being killed by the hundreds every year by trophy hunters from all over the globe, especially the USA, while the species is facing serious threats from climate change.

On top of it, China is today the world’s largest buyer of polar bear fur. Growing demand and rising prices for their hides is thought to have led to an increase in polar bear hunting. China has also imports live polar bears for entertainment in hotels.

There are now estimated to be as few as 20,000 polar bears remaining in the wild.

Killing polar bears for ‘recreation’ could now push this magnificent species over the edge towards extinction.

Canada has two-thirds of the world’s remaining polar bears.

It is the only country in the world that permits the commercial trophy hunting of the White Bear.

We ask you to ban all trophy hunting of polar bears, and to halt commercial trade in polar bears and their body parts.
