Protect Grizzly Bears from Trophy Hunting
Help protect grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem! The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is accepting public comments on a proposed rule to remove Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections from grizzly bears who live in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Sign our petition to keep grizzlies protected.
A range of scientists have said that delisting is premature, and grizzly bears have not fully recovered in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.. The grizzly bear population in the lower 48 states is less than two percent of their pre-settlement population and occupy an insignificant proportion of their pre-settlement range.
Removing federal protections from this one small, isolated population and subjecting them to trophy hunting will not advance the conservation of this species. Human-caused mortality is the single largest contributor to bear deaths. You can put a stop to this.
Tell USFWS you want grizzlies to stay protected under the Endangered Species Act!

I urge you to not delist grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
Grizzlies have thrived under protection from the Endangered Species Act. But the grizzly population and range is far from recovered we should continue to protect them. Allowing them to be delisted and become trophies to hang on a wall, throw on the floor, or pose in a room is cruel and unnecessary. Please continue protection for these iconic bears.
