IGBC To Discuss Grizzly Delisting

IGBC

The annual winter meeting of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee, which is responsible for grizzly bear recovery throughout the Continental United States and adjoining Canadian Provinces, gets under way today in Missoula, Montana.  High on the committee’s agenda is the question of whether to recommend the delisting of the grizzly bear in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.  Frank van Manen, leader of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team will be presenting the results of a comprehensive food synthesis report related to grizzlies in the Yellowstone Ecosystem. The team has been working on the report since last year and a preliminary version was presented to the members of the Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee at their fall meeting in Bozeman.   That Yellowstone subcommittee voted to accept the report pending completion of a final chapter and peer reviews currently underway.  After being presented with the results of the food synthesis report, the IGBC will discuss the idea of proposing a new rule and make a recommendation to the United States Fish & Wildlife Service who makes the final decision on whether to draft a delisting proposal.  The winter meeting continues through Wednesday at which time the question of delisting the bear will be discussed.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]
