Current Projects

Our current projects target the most pressing needs in grizzly country: public education, bear management, and habitat connectivity.

Threats to the Yellowstone Grizzly

Climate Change
Genetic Isolation
Habitat Decline
Management Kill Policies
Billboard Project

Save the Yellowstone Grizzly unveiled five billboards in the fall of 2023 featuring the extraordinary grizzly photography of Thomas Mangelsen, Tom Murphy and others, placed along crucial routes through Montana’s griz country.

Bear Friendly Communities

We produce an ongoing series of road shows throughout the Northern Rockies depicting the work we are doing to protect grizzlies. We also partner with organizations to promote awareness and best practices.

Bear Management Transformation

We are working to encourage bear management practices that value the lives of individual grizzlies, so that people living and recreating in grizzly country are able to safely engage with bears when they encounter them in the wild.

Wildlife Crossings

Wildlife crossings can restore connectivity, mimicking conditions that existed before roads fragmented the landscape. We have identified multiple critical corridors and are in the process of developing plans to take advantage of federal infrastructure funds to finance this effort.
