Speak up for Wyoming’s Grizzlies! Only five meeting left in Wyoming that the public can attend!
Here you will find the dates, times and locations throughout the state of Wyoming. Please spread the word! ~L.G
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is having a series of meetings throughout the state to discuss the management of the iconic grizzly bear since it lost federal protection last summer. Western Watersheds Project and our members know that livestock conflict is a leading cause of grizzly deaths, and it’s time to tell WGFD that native wildlife should be given priority on Wyoming’s public lands.

It’s important that the agency hears from the pro-bear public while it develops its management plans. We want a management plan that promotes conflict reduction and excludes lethal bear removals and trophy hunts. While WWP fights to get Endangered Species Act protection restored for the bears, it’s still important to make sure that Wyoming’s plans don’t undermine grizzly populations in the meantime.
Please spread the word and help us get as many people as possible to speak up for grizzlies at these meetings!
