The Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee is holding its spring meeting in Teton Village Wednesday and Thursday this week. The Yellowstone ecosystem grizzly bear recovery area includes all of Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, as well as portions of northwest Wyoming, eastern Idaho, and southwest Montana. According to Subcommittee Spokesman Gregg Losinski, the spring meeting has a full agenda with discussion of the methods for the estimation of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzly bear population topping the agenda. Losinski says new technology enables more accurate counting and will be considered for use. Losinski says the committee will also discuss additional efforts to prevent bear/human conflicts. Typically, Losinski says bears are relocated within the ecosystem when they get into trouble. However, he says the ecosystem is not so large that they won’t get into the same trouble elsewhere or end up back where they were in the first place. He says that is where public education can play a major role in heading off conflicts in the first place. The spring meeting takes place at Hotel Terra in Teton Village beginning at 1:00 pm Wednesday and is open to the public.
