Manitoba Polar Bear news

Bad news for bears, wolverines, dragonflies and all Canadian wildlife…

Wolverine loses again — Wolverines don’t deserve Endangered Species Act protection in the United States because their population is still strong in Canada, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which yesterday declined to protect the species for the second time.

Remember the polar bears? – Meanwhile, deadlines have long since passed and conservation groups are now suing to get the Fish and Wildlife Service to make some movement on its promises to determine if the polar bear deserves full investigation to receive Endangered Species Act protection.

In other bear news… – Courts ruled against black bears in Florida this week, opening up hunting for what some believe to be an endangered sub-species of the North American black bear. And in Austria, brown bears may soon be extinct, as only two of the animals are left in the country. (Did I mention that they were both male? It’s kind of hard to breed that way…)
