Yellowstone Grizzlies Need Your Help

Yellowstone-area grizzlies are still recovering, and have yet to reach a population large enough to guarantee their long-term survival. Yet, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is proposing to allow trophy hunters to kill (and in some cases bait) up to 24 grizzlies in areas near Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. NRDC is calling on Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to reject this senseless plan.

Tell Governor Mead that you’re outraged by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s decision to allow grizzly hunting and urge him to put an end to it, before it’s too late for two dozen bears.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is proposing to allow grizzly bear trophy hunting, despite dangers like climate change and conflicts with humans that already threaten grizzlies.
