Save the Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear

Target: Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Daniel M. Ashe

Goal: Help grizzly bears recover by protecting essential habitat for these amazing animals

While grizzly bears are making a comeback in both the Yellowstone National Park and Glacier Parks, their numbers only account for 4% of their original range in the lower 48 states. If we want the grizzly bears to stay around for the next century, their range and numbers need to increase. The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service need to expand upon plans for the grizzly bears by providing them with more habitats.

The grizzly bear is extremely iconic, as it is featured on the California state flag and is the mascot for the University of Montana and Berkeley. However the species is in jeopardy as their small habitat size causes the bears to inbreed. Other factors like climate change and human activity have reduced their numbers. Scientists in the Sierra Nevadas have already seen what warm winters have done to the bears’ sleep cycle, and unless immediate solutions are found, bears are at risk of running into humans.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service needs to expand on its plans so grizzly bears will be around for centuries to come. Bears could be relocated to areas in the Sierra Nevadas, the Gila/Mogollon in Arizona, New Mexico, Uinta Mountains, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. This could increase the grizzly bear population to 6,000, also increasing their survivability rate and allowing the species to thrive for generations to come. Currently their plans for the bears are outdated, which places the bears at risk. Just like the wolves in the United States, grizzly bears are a species that humans love and hate. The organization needs to focus on these bears as much as they have focused on wolves and provide them with adequate habitats. Help the bears’ plight by signing this petition; urge the Fish and Wildlife Service to be the force that keep these bears around.


Dear Daniel M. Ashe,

While the numbers for grizzly bears are recovering, unfortunately their population is still too small to be sustainable in the next few centuries. These bears will be forced to inbreed, and their sleeping habits have already changed because of warming winters. Their livelihood is dependent upon humans, but unfortunately we are being irresponsible and hurting their species.

I am writing this letter to urge you to expand the bears’ territory. I want you to move them to various locations like the Grand Canyon in Arizona, or the Unita Mountains in Utah, where they will be free to roam and mate with little human interaction. Your organization has focused heavily on wolves, and I am asking you to do the same for the bears. All animals deserve a place to live, but humans are taking away that freedom with our houses and other industrial activities. Give them a chance to thrive and live for several more centuries.

  1. We have many an enemy passing themselves off as working for the peoples best interest, but they are anything but. Their prime objective is to bleed this world of every descent and human thing there is. Our wild life, our clean air and water, our humanity. The list go’s on and on.If you find the cruel brutish inhumanity, the constant contamination, the passing of bills such as the Ag-gag laws or the laws that allow the murder of millions of pets because they are a specific breed, known as the BSL then you are not looking at human beings, but something far worse and treacherous. They must be stopped. Start by electing Pro Animal and Pro Planet people into office. Take the time to check out what the candidates have actually voted for, it is open to the public.These people( ? ) are building the Hell on earth, Every time they win one of their disgusting wins they gain another foot hold in our down fall, like the oil companies. How many lives have they destroyed and how much land, and how many peoples lives?

  2. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

  3. The previous comments are all on target, I cant do better than to say I second each of them & when near future generations will be living in a world of nothing but wall to wall humans, it will be hell on earth.

  4. We are fast moving our animals to extinction which means we are next!! we need to reduce the human population and leave nature to get on with providing enjoyment for us.

  5. Please do not forget it was their land to start with !!!
