IGBC Winds Up Three-Day Meeting

June 24, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments

The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee involving state and wildlife leaders from throughout the country and the lower provinces of Canada wrapped up their meeting near Dubois, Wyoming last week after reviewing the success rates in some areas of the country, and the continuing challenges in others.  IGBC Spokesman Gregg Losinski says the success in the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Continental Divide Ecosystems in particular was discussed along with post recovery activities. He says one of the things discussed beyond recovery was how to shift the focus of the IGBC to recovery work in some of the other ecosystems that either have some bears, or potentially none at all.  Meanwhile, delisting of the bear here still hinges on a study of food sources being done in response to a court case that has blocked removing the bear from the endangered species list.  Resolving that, he says would clear the way for more focus to be given to recovery efforts in other areas of the country which are faced with complications of their own. He says it is important to note that the habitat in this region is doing very well.  He says even though there are lots of humans and lots of development, wildlife managers are working more and more to make sure that you can have those activities occurring without  impacting the wildlife.  Losinski says to make that happen, sanitation is a critical issue; and a lot of work is being done by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee in conjunction with the Grizzly/Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana to test containers designed to keep bears out of human foods.
