Inuit, Polar Bears, and Sustainable Use

Local, National and International Perspectives

Edited by Milton M.R. Freeman and A. Lee Foote
Preface by Mary May Simpson, Foreword by Jon Hutton

The aim of this book is to contribute to culturally inclusive, equitable and effective wildlife conservation and management in the northern regions—and by extension, in other regions where indigenous systems of co-existing with wildlife also struggle to work with positivistic science-based assessments of conservation needs. Given the diverse worldviews, perspectives, and agendas of all those seeking to influence conservation of the iconic polar bear, it is impossible in a single book to provide a comprehensive treatment of the management problems Inuit residents of the Canadian Arctic and their government co-management partners face at the present time. Consequently, what is presented in this volume are the generally under-reported perspectives of Arctic residents that reflect an experiential understanding of events taking place in the region, and of some others whose views also augment assessments being used to develop polar bear conservation initiatives.

Reviews

"This book provides an excellent review of the sustainability of polar bear hunting in the Arctic and its cultural, social, and economic context. This book is scientific and rich in data and fact It is a sustained and reasoned critique of the listing of the polar bear as endangered, and a defence of both subsistence and guided hunting. Its data will be widely valued."—William M. Adams, Études/Inuit/Studies
