Grizzly ESA Listing Could Be Brief

IGBC

The recent court decision to re-list the Greater Yellowstone grizzly bear population as an endangered species carries with it the assessments that must be satisfied to once again achieve delisting of the animal.  As such, Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee Spokesman Gregg Losinski says it is possible the bear could be off the list again as early as one year from now. Losinski says the courts did uphold the conservation strategy for managing a recovered population, but said the IGBC needed to work more on addressing the impacts of the loss of white bark pine on the bears.  He says the US Fish and Wildlife Service believes they will be able to address those concerns significantly so that in the next year they can move forward with delisting the Yellowstone population. At the same time, Losinski says the IGBC has hired an outside consultant to evaluate the educational efforts aimed at reducing bear/human conflicts in the various ecosystems that make up the bear ranges in the northwestern US.   Losinski says since the needs of the various ecosystems are unique, they need to develop specific tools that address their very different needs.
