NRDC issues call to protect endangered grizzlies


From the NRDC:

The U.S. Forest Service has issued a draft forest plan that fails to provide needed protections for crucial grizzly bear habitat in the Cabinet-Yaak wildlands of northwestern Montana. We need your immediate action to fight this plan, which jeopardizes the future of North America's most endangered grizzly population. Please go to

and urge the Forest Service to help save the 20 or so grizzlies that survive in the Cabinet-Yaak wildlands, part of our Yellowstone/Greater Rockies BioGem, by protecting key habitat areas. Ask the agency to recommend wilderness protection for the remaining roadless lands in the forest.
