Today’s Solutions: September 26, 2023

In good news for grizzly bears and conservationists, a federal court has upheld a reversal of a policy that would eliminate protections for grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park. 

The reversed policy would have removed grizzly bears from the list of threatened species and opened them up to trophy hunting. Reversing this policy means 700 bears in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana will continue to be protected as the species recovers from widespread hunting 50 years ago. 

The court cited scientific and conservation research in making their decision, stating that hunting protections were necessary to ensure the continuation of grizzly bear populations and the health of ecosystems that rely on them. 

If you’ve ever visited Yellowstone National Park and had the opportunity to see a grizzly bear first hand, you’ll understand the beauty of this magnificent species. Humans aside, the role that these bears play as predators in Yellowstone habitats is vital and essential. Federal protections ensure that these species will thrive for generations to come.
