The US Fish and Wildlife Service is pushing for the removal of grizzly bears from the protections of Endangered Species Act. We believe this rush to delist is politically driven and not based in sound science. The grizzly’s loss of two key food sources, whitebark pine nuts and cutthroat trout, have placed the bear in a precarious position. Add global warming and its potential negative effects on remaining food supplies, and the fate of the grizzly becomes even more of a concern. The USFWS claims the grizzly can adapt to changes in food availability, but they have refused to allow their science supporting this to be reviewed by independent scientists. This lack of transparency is a cause for concern that, among other issues, compels us to advocate against delisting and for better science.
