Today, the U.S. Department of the Interior announced that they are delisting the Greater Yellowstone grizzly bear.
This decision will set grizzly recovery in the region back by decades. Greater Yellowstone grizzlies are already facing an uphill battle -- isolation from other bears, diminished sources of food, and record-high mortalities.
The surrounding states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho have already made it clear that without endangered species protections, they will immediately reduce the number of bears in the area and allow people to trophy hunt grizzly bears.
For years, activists like you have called on U.S. Department of Interior to continue to protect these grizzlies, honoring the Tribal Nations who hold these bears sacred. Now, Interior Secretary Zinke must know that we will not stand by and allow Greater Yellowstone grizzly bears to go the way of the dinosaurs.
Tell Secretary Zinke that the Greater Yellowstone grizzlies must continue to be protected and to stop these attacks on wildlife!
