  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes delisting Yellowstone grizzly bears

    In March 2016, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published the long-awaited proposal to remove the Greater Yellowstone population of grizzly bears from the endangered species list. The population has been recovered for well over a decade and it is past time for the states to regain full management authority over this species. State agency personnel from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Governor’s Office of Species Conservation are currently reviewing the delisting proposal to ensure it appropriately reflects previous agreements made between the states and the federal agencies.

    For more information, including how to comment on the delisting proposal, visit the Fish and Wildlife Service Grizzly Bear page.
