That has more to do with them being on the endangered list or simular in every country that has them.
Of the 19 groups of bears only one is increasing in size while 7 don't have enough data. The rest are either stable or declining. It is getting harder for them to hunt seals and they are comming futher south looking for food.

So can we assume global warming is a good thing for seals.
