Auf einer heute in Moskau beginnenden Konferenz zum Schutz der Eisbären fordert der IFAW Regierungsvertreter auf, sich stärker für die bedrohten Tiere einzusetzen. Vor genau 40 Jahren, 1973, unterzeichneten alle fünf Staaten mit Eisbärenpopulationen ein Abkommen, das die Tiere u. a. vor der unkontrollierten Jagd schützen sollte. Die Bedrohungen haben sich seither verändert, nicht aber die Notwendigkeit, die Art vor dem Aussterben zu bewahren.

De Verenigde Staten, Canada, Denemarken, Noorwegen en Rusland tekenden in 1973 een overeenkomst om de ijsbeer te beschermen. Vandaag, 40 jaar na die ondertekening, worden deze dieren nog altijd ernstig bedreigd.  Door jagers en stropers, door de internationale handel in huiden, maar tegenwoordig ook door de verandering van het klimaat. Daarom staat Moskou de komende drie dagen in het teken van het International Polar Bear Forum.
