#Regram #RG @sea_legacy: Photo by @DaisyGilardini // The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) officially classifies the polar bear as "Vulnerable" on its Red List of Threatened Species.™ The worldwide population of polar bears is estimated to be between 22,000 and 31,000 individuals, of which roughly two-in-three — anywhere from 60% to 80% — live in Canada. Around 600 official hunting tags are licensed each year to native Inuit hunters, who can then sell those tags to non-resident trophy hunters, in some cases for tens of thousands of dollars. Local stakeholders, area residents, Aboriginal people — First Nations, Inuit and Métis — guiding outfitters, trophy hunters, scientists, researchers and politicians of all stripes all have strong opinions about fluctuations in the polar bear population, based on their own private agendas, interests and beliefs. One fact is clear, though, regardless of the debate: Climate change is real, verifiable and plain to see. And so is the threat to the species. #TurningTheTide #WapuskNationalPark #PolarBear #explorecanada
