Polar bears need CITES Appendix I protection now

As the polar bears are under multiple increasing anthropogenic threats (including climate change, trophy hunting, exposure to toxic pollution) it is important that all countries support the polar bear taxa to be included in the Appendix 1 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) to reduce trophy hunting and poaching of polar bears

World Heritage

Most countries have passed laws to protect national heritage sites, with various classifications for owners. In Europe, many countries uphold the Venice Charter of 1964 though each country's name and criteria for protection, may change.
