Tell Trump and Zinke GRIZZLY BEAR trophy hunting outside Yellowstone is UNACCEPTABLE

To be delivered to President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

President Trump and Interior Secretary Zinke,
We oppose your removal of Endangered Species Act protection for grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This will lead to trophy hunting of grizzlies in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming for the first time in 40 years, just outside the park. Grizzlies are iconic wildlife of the American West, and are critical to ecosystem health. They have not fully recovered in the U.S., and removing protections for a sub-population of an endangered species illegally harms the whole species.
There are currently 1,051 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Western Environmental Law Center is a nonprofit, public-interest environmental law firm. Our expert attorneys are in court to protect grizzly bears from delisting. Please join us to send a message to the Trump administration by signing this petition and adding your comments to that you want grizzlies to fully recover as a natural and integral part of our landscape.
