A REQUEST FROM THE BSG, BEAR SPECIALIST GROUP
This will take only 2 minutes of your time!
As part of Valentine’s Day, there is now a voting for “The World’s Favorite Unloved Species”.
It is a way of making the public aware of conservation issues of species that are not
glamorous enough to attract widespread attention.
The BSG was asked to nominate such a species, and we decided on the Sloth Bear (for its
unkempt looks, its diet of sucked up insects, and its very aggressive behavior).
Now, we need you to VOTE for this species (even if you’re not a sloth bear person!).
We note that there are many other interesting species that have been nominated, including
another bear (another organization nominated the Andean/Spectacled bear, but we really
don’t think this species is “unloved” in the same sense that sloth bears are).
Let’s see if we can get into the TOP 10, and thereby get some more attention for sloth
You can only vote once, but please spread the word: http://blog.arkive.org/2016/02/vote-for-your-favourite-unloved-species-sloth-bear/
