**The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species, with eight of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations in decline. For years, large scale hunting raised international concern for the future of the species but populations rebounded after controls and quotas began to take effect.For centuries, polar bears has been a key figure in the material, spiritual, and cultural life of Arctic indigenous peoples, and polar bears remain important in their cultures.
