Dear Madam, dear Sir,
As a direct result of global warming, the polar ice caps will melt to
nothing or next to nothing within mere decades. This seems inevitable and
unstoppable. Since the Harp seals need ice as a species to survive, they
could die out within one generation of the total disappearance of the polar
ice cap. This year, for the first time in observed natural history, the Gulf
of St. Lawrence is nearly ice-free, resulting in the drowning of days-old
pups by the thousands.
For the same reason, Polar bear has been suffering a shortening and
shortened winter, resulting in poorer condition, and drowning when forces to
swim long distances. Further, the Polar bear is closely connected to the
Harp seal in the Arctic food web. If the Harp seal falls extinct, so would
the Polar bear.
I don't think I need another reason, such as the massive and notorious
Canadian commercial seal hunt, to propose the uplisting of both the Harp
seal and the Polar bear to CITES I - "Endangered"
Indeed, if we consider the period of merely 50 years, I do not see any two
large mammalian species as being more doomed than the Polar bear and the
Harp seal. To save them, to uplist them is the first logiocal step.
Thank you for your consideration.
