The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service currently is considering the most significant wildlife issue of our time: removal of Endangered Species Act protections from Yellowstone’s grizzly bear population.
This action will trigger a trophy hunting season in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Habitat and food sources for Yellowstone’s grizzlies are being profoundly impacted by climate change.
These bears are the slowest reproducing land mammal in the United States, and opening a hunting season on them while they are already struggling with the effects of climate change would be an arbitrary and capricious action that ignores the best available science, and smacks of reckless disregard for the bears’ well being.
We, the undersigned, are asking Secretary Zinke to direct his agency to maintain Endangered Species Act protections for Yellowstone’s grizzly bears.
Please sign the petition: Save the Yellowstone Grizzly – Stop the Delisting & Stop the Trophy Hunt.
Thank you for your support.
