The Polar Bear is becomig extinced from, oil drilling, oil spillings, killings, and global warming. Scientists perdict that in 50 years 2/3 of the Polar Bears will be gone and there are 25,000 Polar Bears left in the wild. The Polar Bear is at VUlNERABlE on the red list.
- Growing public concern about polar bear hunting and other human activities in the Arctic, such as oil exploration, led to the First International Scientific Meeting on the Polar Bear in 1965. Attending were representatives from all five polar bear countries: Canada, Greenland (territory of Denmark), Norway, the United States, and the (former) Soviet Union. The meeting set the stage for additional international conferences and research efforts, which eventually led to an international agreement on polar bear conservation.
