This article focuses on the proposal of the federal government to take grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem off the Endangered Species Act's threatened species list. The National Wildlife Federation has decided to support this proposal only after a thorough review of the facts and documents on which the proposal was based. Two major reasons led the group to come up with such a decision. It is noted that bear management plans adopted by Montana, Idaho and Wyoming establish goals for expanding the grizzly range far beyond the intensively protected core area. Many other initiatives are under way that will benefit both bears and the people that live with them.
