NOTE: The polar bear is not listed here. Current assessments are out-of-date, and were not performed accurately. The polar bear population is difficult to assess due in part to the harsh environments they reside in, and because it has become a political tool in the environmentalist war against oil and natural gas. Thus, unbiased assessments of their populations do not currently exist. However, Inuit natives report that polar bears are an increasingly common sight, and appear to be thriving.

Bears are such beautiful creatures, and yet many of them are hunted down and blamed for trespassing even though it is humans that go barging into their territories and destroying their natural habitats...

You're thinking of red pandas, which are not listed here at all. Giant pandas are bears.

Names can be deceiving. Guinea pigs aren't from Guinea, maned wolves aren't wolves, and red pandas aren't pandas.
