Меры защиты белых медведей усиливаются, но эксперты говорят - этого недостаточно.

Publication Date: 
Novembre 7, 2014

На 11-й Конференции сторон Конвенции по сохранению мигрирующих видов диких животных  (CMS) был сделан важнейший шаг – участники достигли соглашения о включении белого медведя (Ursus maritimus) в Приложение II Конвенции. Это решение должно быть окончательно оформлено в воскресенье (9 ноября). Эксперты Международного фонда защиты животных (IFAW) поддерживают это решение, но при этом настаивают на всеобъемлющей защите белых медведей путем их внесения и в 1-е, и во 2-е Приложения Конвенции, с тем чтобы обеспечить выживание вида.
