Polar bear trade ban divides campaigners

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-20798136


Some campaigners argue that the key issue for polar bears is climate change

Wildlife campaigners are at odds over a new attempt to ban the global trade in polar bear parts.

Some activists say the market for rugs and ornaments made from the bears is driving them to extinction,

But others argue that the most pressing problem for the species is climate change and the disappearance of polar ice.

The issue will be decided at a UN wildlife conservation meeting in Thailand in March 2013.



***honest to god -- climate change aside -- we can't just leave the bears alone?
