Thanks to Endangered Species Act protections, Yellowstone's grizzly bears still survive today -- but they are far from recovered. In the lower 48 states, grizzly bears occupy less than 2 percent of their original range.
Excessive killing and expanding human development still put these magnificent predators at risk -- but a newly proposed recovery plan doesn't work to curb these threats.
Grizzlies in Yellowstone could face severe isolation under the new plan, which does not connect the population to other more robust groups of grizzly bears. The plan also arbitrarily excludes important grizzly habitat and does not address the loss of wildlands and food sources caused by climate change as well as human-caused conflicts.
Please tell the Fish and Wildlife Service to give grizzly bears the protection they deserve.
