Save Yellowstone’s Grizzly Bears

Target: Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior

Goal: Correct premature removal of Yellowstone grizzly bears from endangered species list.

The Yellowstone grizzly bear has been removed from the endangered species list. Unfortunately, this is not a cause for celebration; despite the Interior Department’s insistence that the species has had ample time to recover its population, activist groups and conservationists feel it is far too soon to declare the grizzlies safe.

While it is true that the grizzly population has improved since the 1970s, it is still too soon to remove them from the endangered species list. This removal will strip the bears of the protections granted to them over the past four decades, which could quickly reduce the population once more. In addition, the bears’ natural food sources are dwindling, making it harder for the bears to stay healthy and alive on their own. The growing number of grizzlies does not mean the bears are out of the woods just yet.

It is too soon to remove the vital protections granted to this species by the Endangered Species Act. Sign this petition to demand the Yellowstone grizzly bear be placed back on the endangered list.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Zinke,

The Department’s decision to remove the Yellowstone grizzly bear from the endangered species list is a dangerous move. Despite the bears’ population having grown since the 1970s, it is too soon to declare them safe, mainly in part due to their rapidly dwindling food supplies. In addition, with their protection revoked, the grizzlies will be in danger of being hunted or having their natural habitat infringed upon by humans, which will quickly bring the population right back to where it started four decades ago.

Do not put these creatures at risk by revoking their protections so quickly. Put the Yellowstone grizzly bear back on the endangered species list right away.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Was there any doubt this would happen?
    Both the Trump boys are trophy hunters and you can be sure that every rule and regulation that protects wildlife from people who enjoy inflicting pain suffering and death will be done away with.
    Same as what’s happening with the EPA and environmental protection rules.
