To STYG’s deeply appreciated and essential supporters,
After speaking with our attorneys, I’ve put together a brief update on our legal action regarding the killing of an Idaho grizzly cub by state officials in November of last year. The cub’s mother and sibling had been killed shortly before this with permission of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), with zero evidence that any of them posed any form of threat to the people or properties they visited. The legal Complaint of Save the Yellowstone Grizzly against defendants USFWS and state officials the Idaho Department of Fish & Game (IDFG) was filed on August 14th. Here’s what’s at stake.
Our new film The Return of the Grizzly is about the novel ground zero initiatives underway to save the species, including a planned system of under- and overpasses designed to give “that male bear, that explorer bear, that innovative bear, the bear with culture and genes for linkage,” the opportunity to connect isolated populations before they are all “snuffed out, traits lost.” (Barry Gilbert).
Save the Yellowstone Grizzly (STYG) is seeking paid volunteers to table in Yellowstone National Park. Spend a summer in America’s first national park educating the public on the plight of the grizzly bear. With 4.4 million visitors to the park from around the world, you will be playing an important role on behalf of the grizzly.

This #GIVINGTUESDAY, please take a moment to contribute to the cause of grizzly bears and the preservation of the American wild.
Westward Expansion saw grizzlies mindlessly exterminated with no regard to the bear’s relationship to life or land. Today, in the contiguous United States, their population has “recovered” to roughly 2% of their historic population. This population remains confined to a mere 1% of their natural range. Now, they exist primarily within the protections of national park boundaries and the wilderness areas that surround them.
Author, grizzly bear expert and wildlands advocate Doug Peacock has been touring the West with his latest book, Was It Worth It?: A Wilderness Warrior’s Long Trail Home.
