Lightbulb Grizzly Bears in Peril

Most people I know have a deep respect for animals and the natural environment. With that in mind, please read the following:

Grizzly Bears in Peril
by John H. Adams, President
Natural Resources Defense Council

The Bush administration has just announced plans to strip life-saving protections from Yellowstone's grizzly bears, one of the last wild vestiges of the American West. We are counting on your urgent action to ensure the long-term survival of these bears.

Thirty years ago, grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park were on the brink of extinction, their numbers decimated by a century-long campaign of extermination.

After receiving crucial protection under the Endangered Species Act, though, these majestic creatures rebounded. Today, some 500 to 600 bears roam the rugged landscapes of America's oldest national park -- the heart of Yellowstone/Greater Rockies.

But the Bush administration is now threatening to reverse the progress that has been made by eliminating the grizzly's protected status, even as threats against these bears are escalating. Rampant real estate development, oil and gas drilling and road building are laying waste to vast stretches of the grizzly's wild habitat.

Delisting would loosen restrictions on these destructive activities, causing habitat areas to fragment and further isolating Yellowstone's grizzlies from more robust populations in Canada. At the same time, states surrounding the park would be free to allow grizzly hunting.

Please go to http://www.savebiogems.org/bears/takeaction.asp and send a message telling the Bush administration to keep these bears on the endangered species list until their habitat is permanently protected and their future is secure. And while you're there, be sure to watch the short video about the bears.

Thank you for helping to protect these important icons of our nation's history and natural heritage.
