For all you fans of the Alaskan polar bear

A federal appeals court today upheld Endangered Species Act protections for the polar bear, Reuters reports.
The ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit means the bear will remain listed as threatened, the lower of two levels of federal protection.
That designation was originally challenged from two sides. Environmental groups said the bear should be listed as endangered, the highest level of protection, while industry and sporting groups and Alaska said it didn't merit any protection.
