IGBC Holds Nationwide Meeting This Week

June 17, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
IGBC

Members of the international Interagency Grizzly Bear Recovery Team meet beginning tomorrow near Dubois to discuss the progress of recovery efforts throughout the US and Canada and compare notes on successes and challenges seen in the various regions.  Greater Yellowstone IGBC Spokesman Gregg Losinski says discussions will go far beyond the Greater Yellowstone population. Losinski says the folks who are managing the Yellowstone Ecosystem are feel that they have reached the recovery stage and have moved on to management, and would like to see some of those resources that have been used to recovery there can be moved elsewhere.  Consequently, Losinski says, “Part of the discussion will focus on what has happened in Yellowstone and where we’re at, but also what is happening in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem.”  Losinski says that ecosystem too has reached its recovery goals and now shares Yellowstone’s challenges of determining best management practices and move toward delisting the animal.  Losinski says there were valuable lessons learned in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem which faced numerous challenges to the delisting of the bear in court.  “One thing we have learned by putting together the recovery here in Yellowstone,” says Losinski, “is there are certain ways you phrase things and certain ways you put things down on paper as far as your goals so that you can attain those goals in reality but not have them squashed in court.”  By sharing this information, he says, hopefully the future of plans that come out of places like the NCDE will be better written from things learned in Yellowstone so they move forward faster there. The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee was created in 1983 to lead the effort to recover the grizzly bear in the lower 48 states and lower provinces of Canada; and leadership is made up of state, federal, and Canadian resource management agencies.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
