David Mattson and Steve Primm, a nationally-recognized expert on grizzly bear-human coexistence, call for the US Fish & Wildlife Service to revise its 1993 Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan to reflect the best available science and an emerging consensus regarding requirements for long-term viability--notably the need for large connected populations totaling 1000s of individuals with both genetic and demographic connectivity. This kind of revision also needs to reflect lessons learned from on-the-ground experience with successful coexistence between people and grizzly bears, which contributes to a more generous and meaningful vision of recovery for grizzly bears in the contiguous United States.

This video is a tour of bears in the night sky, and about the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, the Big Bear or Big Dipper and the Little Bear or Little Dipper, that have given direction and hope to people for thousands of years across the Northern Hemisphere.
How People on Foot Affect Grizzly Bears
This video provides a brief synopsis of key results from a recently released report summarizing research on how foot-bound people (i.e., pedestrians) affect grizzly and brown bears. People on foot can impact grizzly bears every bit as much as people on motorized vehicles.
