Zoologist Dr. Susan J. Crockford: Ten good reasons not to worry about polar bears: ‘Polar bears are a conservation success story. Their numbers have rebounded remarkably since 1973’

-

Excerpt:

Polar bears today are well distributed throughout their available territory, which is a recognized characteristic of a healthy species.

These are all good reasons to feel good about the current status of the polar bear. It is plain to see that these ice-dwelling bears are not currently threatened with extinction due to declining sea ice, despite the hue and cry from activist scientists and environmental organizations. Indeed,because the polar bear is doing so well, those who would like to see polar bears listed as “threatened” depend entirely upon dramatic declines in sea ice prophesied to occur decades from now to make their case.
