Restore Endangered Grizzly Bear Populations at National Park

Target: United States President, Donald Trump

Goal: Reintroduce threatened grizzly bear populations to North Cascades National Park.

There are currently less than ten grizzly bears living at the North Cascades National Park. The park is considered to be the largest grizzly bear recovery zone in the United States, which is an area that is thought to be an ideal habitat to help grizzly bear populations increase. Despite these facts, the Trump administration refuses to look at how low grizzly bear populations could negatively impact the environment, and further will not consider a plan to reintroduce the animals to the area. The bears will soon become extinct if a plan is not implemented to repopulate and protect these animals.

Although grizzly bears used to thrive, they are now a threatened species. In fact, grizzly bears are at a higher risk of becoming extinct than other types of bears in the United States. According to experts, these bears roam in less than five percent of their respective range at North Cascades National Park. If the bears were to be reintroduced into the area, they would occupy less than 50 percent of the park, and 72 percent of that area does not contain authorized roads. Therefore, the chances of a person running into one of these bears would be extremely low.

Because of past government programs that encouraged people to kill the bears, it is approximated that there are only about 1,800 grizzly bears living at both Yellowstone and Glacier National Park combined. If grizzly bears are not reintroduced to North Cascades National Park, these animals will be one step closer to becoming extinct. The Endangered Species Act requires that the population of grizzly bears in this area be restored and protected. Sign this petition to demand that the Trump administration do whatever necessary to bring more grizzly bears to the park so these amazing animals will be able to thrive.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

Grizzly bear populations are dwindling at alarming rates at the North Cascades National Park. There have been no recent sightings of the animals, and experts surmise that the park currently contains less than ten grizzly bears. Although your administration has turned down a proposal that would help to reintroduce these bears into the area, doing so is extremely important to prevent them from becoming extinct.

Grizzly bears are listed as a threatened species. In fact, they are more likely to become extinct than any other species of bear in the United States. While some residents are concerned that reintroducing the bears into the wild would cause people danger, the animals currently live in less than five percent of the park, and most of those areas do not have road access.

Grizzly bears living at the Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks are also in great danger of dying out, as these places only occupy a total of about 1,800 bears. Therefore, it is important to reintroduce grizzly bears to the North Cascades National Park in order to help keep this majestic animal around for years to come. For these reasons, we demand you support a program that would help repopulate these bears at the North Cascades National Park, in order to ensure they will be around for future generations.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
