The EU delegation currently in Thailand at an international conference is actively derailing the polar bear’s best chance of survival. While the United States, supported by the Russian Federation, is hours away from securing vital protections to ban a significant threat to polar bears—international commercial trade—the EU just put forward an alternate proposal that would validate Canada’s current unsustainable hunting levels.

On the eve of the 16th Conference of the Parties (CoP) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Bangkok, IFAW is urging conservation NGOs to come together to discuss how they can improve the way they coordinate with each other to protect animals on the ground.

“There are now more than 50 NGOs involved in the CITES community and their role is more important than ever, especially when they work together,” says Azzedine Downes, CEO and President of IFAW and head of IFAW’s CITES delegation.

The ruling maintains the current ban on the import of sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada.

The 16th Conference of the Parties (CoP) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species has begun here in Bangkok, Thailand.

As I hope you’ve read in our other blog posts the fate of numerous species will be decided over the next two weeks.

The world will watch if we manage to save several hundred polar bears from international trade each year.

Urgent, interactive and as close as your nearest internet link, that’s IFAW’s Unveiling the Ivory Trade, an online report and iPad app that highlights the escalating illegal ivory trade. 

“Right now the quickest way to spread the message that the illegal ivory trade is killing elephants by their thousands is to take it online. That is exactly what IFAW has done with Unveiling the Ivory Trade,” says Jason Bell, IFAW Director - Elephant Programme.

A coalition of groups is applauding a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reject a challenge to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2008 decision to list polar bears as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The ruling keeps in place the current ban on the import of trophies of sport-hunted polar bears from Canada.
