Return of the Grizzly
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).

Etiquette in Grizzly Country
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.
Was It Worth It Tour
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.
Explorer grizzly bears, essential for connecting bear populations, are dispersing to the edge of their ecosystems due to climate change. They are being harassed and killed at an alarming record setting rate. The bears must be shown tolerance–especially by the Federal Wildlife Service–and given “room to roam” in their new habitats. If removal from the endangered species list is dependent upon connectivity, then killing explorer bears will forever keep grizzly populations separated and unrecovered.

Historically, an estimated 100,000 grizzlies lived in North America from Alaska to Mexico, the West Coast to the Mississippi River. And an estimated 50,000 in the contiguous United States around the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804.
