Polar bears are far less protected than you might think. People still kill hundreds of them every year for their skins and as hunting trophies - a total of almost 53,500 between 1963 and 2016. That's more than twice as many as are alive today.
This trade is not only unnecessary, it also undermines the bears' chances to cope with climate change. Ending it is the most immediate conservation action we can take for polar bears right now.
