Keep grizzly bears protected!
The federal government is currently deciding whether it will remove Endangered Species act protections for grizzly bears living in the Northern Continental Divide and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystems. Yellowstone National Park’s iconic wolves have already been slaughtered by trophy hunters—entire packs have even been wiped out—and Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier national park grizzly bears could be next.
Thanks to their ESA protections, grizzly bears have slowly begun to recover their numbers. Yet with fewer than 2,000 individuals in the lower 48 states, it’s critical that they retain these protections if they are to survive. If grizzly bears lose those protections, those three states will undoubtedly allow trophy hunting and the bears cannot survive the inevitable carnage.
We don’t have a moment to lose if we want to save this iconic species from extinction.
Please take a moment to contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and urge them to keep grizzly bears protected under the Endangered Species Act.
