Why this petition matters

Started by OneProtest

This petition represents the overwhelming majority of people who vehemently oppose the delisting of the Yellowstone grizzly bears.

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon wants grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem delisted. He has petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to delist the GYE grizzly bear population, which would give the state the power and authority over grizzlies. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now has 90 days to determine whether to conduct a comprehensive status review of the species. It will then have 12 months from receipt of the petition to complete the status review and issue a recommendation.

Without protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), grizzlies will be killed by trophy hunters. Politics should never take precedence over sound science and the people's will. There is no data to support Governor Gordon's claim that grizzlies have recovered and need to be "managed."

We respectfully urge federal officials to reject this request. The Yellowstone grizzlies are still recovering, and removing protections is a death sentence for them. Climate change, poaching, vehicle strikes, and habitat loss pose a significant threat to the future of this species, whose existence is critical in a balanced and healthy ecosystem.

Stay tuned for updates and calls to action!
