IGBC Meets Wednesday & Thursday

IGBC

Now that the Greater Yellowstone grizzly bears have been placed back under the protection of the Endangered Species Act, what direction will future management of the bear take?  That is now one of the topics that will certainly emerge as the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee conducts its annual winter meeting in Missoula, Montana beginning tomorrow (Wednesday).  However, Grizzly Bear Recovery Coordinator Chris Servheen says since the court ruling is so recent, it is not likely much can be worked out on the matter yet. The meeting is open to the public with a public comment period provided at the end of each day of the two-day meeting.  The IGBC consists of representatives from the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey and representatives of the state wildlife agencies of Idaho, Montana, Washington and Wyoming. In the interest of international coordination and cooperation, the Canadian Wildlife Service is also represented.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]
  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
