Petition to Make Polar Bear Hunting Illegal in Canada

PETITION: Make Polar Bear Hunting Illegal in Canada

TARGET: Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau

The global population of polar bears is estimated between 20,000 and 22,000 which classifies them as 'threatened.' Although there is a small number of polar bears left, over 1,000 are hunted annually! This prevents the polar bear population from increasing to a healthier number. Canada is the only nation in the world that allows polar bear hunting by non-natives and non-citizens. The main problem with this is that 60% of polar bears reside in Canada. By allowing hunting by non-natives and non-citizens it creates a bloody business where trophy hunters sell hunting tours in Canada to kill polar bears. The hunt of one male polar bear is offered for $35,000 and there are people who really do book these tours to trophy hunt. There has also been an increase in polar bear skin sales. The Canadian government actually encourages the hunt and are paying hunters for Polar Bear hides. The government pre-pays hunters for the hides of bears shot and then sell the hides at auctions for up to $11,000. Tell the Canadian government to stop the legal slaughter of one of the highest endangered species in the world.

It's just not fair to the animals and not important enough or okay enough to let a person certified as a hunter to be allowed. Hunting needs to be kept simple, for food or for the health of the ecosystem...not something like this....animals aren't objects...they don't just magically appear on earth forever....once gone gone. They are very much alive like you and me. We need to do what is right at all times if we can, period. We have that power, we only need to choose it and then the world changes slowly but surely into what it is we make important and we can very much do this as much as be aware of how much we need to control and when. All you need to do is what is right, even if it takes time...we need a safe and loving world to live in and this world right here with the polar bears being hunted is for sure the opposite of that.
