Today is International Polar Bear Day, take a moment to read Jeffrey Flocken's post asking why another 400 bears should die for trinkets when these beautiful creatures already face threats from climate change. Then learn about our efforts to protect polar bears at the CITES CoP 16 in Bangkok, Thailand starting next week and stay tuned, lots more info from CITES coming your way. - J.C. - IFAW

Hi all - International Fund for Animal Welfare vet Dr. Kati Loeffler filed this outstanding field essay about three Russian bear cubs who had been rehabilitated at the International Fund for Animal Welfare Bear Rehabilitation Center north of Moscow. Kati does a wonderful job of both describing the bears combined with a dramatic recount of tagging these little guys. Take a read and as always, we can't do it without your support. Many thanks, - J.C. - IFAW - http://bit.ly/IUa9GL

Hi all - The International Fund for Animal Welfare's Director, seal program, Sheryl Fink just filed this report from the Gulf of St. Lawrence - you would think with a commercial quota of 400,000 seals, hunters looking to make a living would be out en mass, but that simply isn't the case. Take a read and if you haven't already, take action! - Your support means a lot to Sheryl, her team and all of us here at IFAW. Many thanks, - J.C. - IFAW
