Grizzly Delisting Delayed!



WWA contacted Ryan Moehring at the public affairs office of the USFWS about the announced delay and we were told the following:

1) Getting the Conservation Strategy in place took longer than anticipated; and

2) Reviewing 650,000+ comments, many of which were substantive in nature, was very time consuming and we needed to thoughtfully address those substantive comments; and

3) Their “best guess for finalizing a decision is early summer, possibly June, though that is still an estimate at this time.”

{Original Post} We don’t have much information yet, and we’ve so far only seen this in the Casper Star Tribune, but it has an Associated Press byline, so it appears reputable.

This is a bit of good news: grizzly delisting is being delayed by 6 months.

This news report seems to blame the delay on counting the rather impressive 650,000 public comments received. It seems a lot of people care about grizzlies.
