Another Win for the Polar Bears! / Post by Erica Wills of Polar Bears International
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has ruled to uphold the 2008 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) ban on the importation of polar bear parts collected by hunting!
This is an exciting win for polar bears and all who are working so hard to preserve this magnificent species. Congratulations to the USFWS, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), the Defenders of Wildlife, and the Human Society for their successful defense of the 2008 USFWS ruling to list polar bears as Threatened on the Endangered Species Act!
