Yellowstone Grizzly Bear Study Progressing

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Federal managers of the Yellowstone region’s grizzly bears say their work on the Endangered Species Act delisting process may be done this fall.

Grizzly Bear Recovery Coordinator Chris Servheen says the work involves completing a threats analysis.

He tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that when the analysis is complete, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service may decide whether to propose delisting. That would begin another process of proposals and public comment that could go well into next year.

Members of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee’s Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee heard a report this past week in Jackson about the effort to change the protection status of the region’s grizzly bears.

Committee members unanimously agreed in December to support ending Endangered Species Act protections.
