Dear colleagues:

The US Fish and Wildlife Service currently has a comment period open for its proposed CITES actions at the next Conference of the Parties in 2013.  They have three categories of proposals - those they will sponsor, those they are still considering, and those they have decided not to sponsor.  Polar bears are in the "still considering" category.  The links below give additional details about this situation, if you are interested in submitting public comments on this process.

Hi Naomi,

I think you agreed to post the opportunity to comment to the USFWS on submitting the CITES PB proposal onto Marmam? Can you let me know when this has been done?

Here are the relevant links:
