Record #197424:

History of polar bears as summer residents on the St Matthew Islands, Bering Sea / David R. Klein, Art Sowls.

Title: History of polar bears as summer residents on the St Matthew Islands, Bering Sea / David R. Klein, Art Sowls.
Author(s): Klein, David R.
Sowls, Art.
Date: 2011.
In: Arctic. (2011.), Vol. 64(4) (2011)
Abstract: Historical documents suggest that killing of last summer-resident polar bears (Ursus maritimus) on St Matthew Islands was indirect consequence of controversy between United States and Great Britain over management of fur seal harvest and associated pelagic hunting of these seals. Although polar bears have continued to be present near St Matthew Islands in winter, when sea ice is present, metapopulation of summer resident bears has not been re-established on islands. In 1972, State of Alaska considered proposal to re-establish summer-resident polar bear population on St Matthew Islands and, since 2008, such reestablishment has been suggested as conservation strategy.
