ALL GRIZZLY

READ THE SCIENCE!

Find out everything you ever wanted to know about the biology and ecology of grizzly bears. Authored by world-renowned bear biologist Dr. David Mattson, this site summarizes and synthesizes in beautiful graphic form the science of grizzly bears.

PIIKANI NATION TREATY

Find out how much Native Americans care about the grizzly bear, with a Grizzly Treaty that has been signed by more than 270 tribes, as well as numerous traditional societies and leaders. The document has become a symbol of international unity in defense of sovereignty, spiritual and religious protection, and treaty rights. 

MOSTLY NATURAL GRIZZLIES

For an in depth and comprehensive look at the ecology and demography of grizzly bears in the northern US Rocky Mountains, along with all the research relevant to conservation of these bears, see Mostly Natural History of the Northern Rocky Mountains.

GOAL TRIBAL COALITION

GOAL is a coalition of nearly 50 tribes  (and counting) who object to the federal and state plans to delist grizzly bears prematurely and allow trophy

hunting of this sacred being.

GOAL advocates for the tribes'

legal right to meaningful consultation and also for the reconection of tribal peoples to their traditional homelands

Perhaps surprisingly for a state with such outstanding natural beauty, Wyoming has the nation's worst voting record on environmental issues. In fact, at 0%, it couldn't be worse.

At 4%, Idaho is slightly behind and although Montana's Senate record is 88%, it's House record is also a pathetic 4%   

Grizzly bears in these states are under attack and they do not stand a chance unless we speak out.

League of Conservation Voters Scorecard

Why? 

Because we need as many influential people as possible to understand this issue in good time. Now, the issue of delisting is getting tangled up in the larger debate over the fate of the Endangered Species Act. Not only do we need to make the case that Yellowstone grizzlies are still threatened and need protection, at the same time, we need to make sure that the Endangered Species Act is not gutted. it is important to thank ESA champions like Congressmen like Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Senators Chuck Shumer (D-NY), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), who never get enough thanks for the hard work they do for all species and the health of the planet.

The Time To Act Is Now!

Take a look at this report 

The facts and figures

within it are both

illuminating and terrifying.

Pick Up The Phone

The phone numbers for WY, MT and ID politicians are beneath their addresses.

 

If you want to contact

additional politicians, call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121.

 

Ask to be connected

to that senator’s and/or representative’s office. Then ask to speak with the aide who handles the issue on which you wish to comment, as members of Congress are often difficult to reach.

 

Identify yourself by name

as a constituent and tell the aide

that you would like to leave a brief message such as:

 

“Please tell Senator/Representative (Name) that I support the Endangered Species Act and oppose any attempts to weaken protection for wildlife and habitat.”

 

Briefly state your reasons for your opinion and ask for your senator’s/representative’s position.

 

You can also request a written response to your call.
