Alaska: Polar Bear Isn't Endangered

Correction March 3, 2008

Editor's note: This story contains two passages very similar to wording that appeared nine days earlier in the "Los Angeles Times." The NPR News Code of Ethics and Practices forbids the use of language from other news organizations without attribution. Our apologies to the "L.A. Times." NPR regrets the error.

The federal government is poised to protect the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act, but Alaska's government opposes the listing, as do many Native American groups.
