Final Report

Norway invited the Contracting Parties to the 1973 polar bear Agreement to a meeting of the parties in Tromsø in 2009.
Around 1970 widespread hunting had reduced polar bear populations in many parts of the Arctic. The polar bear Range States, Canada, Denmark/Greenland, Norway, Russia and USA, entered into an agreement in 1973 to protect polar bears and their habitat. The five Contracting Parties met last time in Oslo 1981 and decided then that the agreement would be valid indefinitely.
 
The purpose of the 2009 meeting was to: provide an update on the conservation status for the polar bears, review implementation of the polar bear Agreement, identify useful polar bear conservation strategies and discuss mechanisms for enhanced implementation of the polar bear Agreement.
