2022 FEATURED PROJECTGrizzly Bear Recovery Project

The state of Montana is a stronghold for grizzly bears - with very healthy grizzly bear populations in the northwestern part of the state (the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem) and in the southwest (the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem). Montana's Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department (FWP) has developed a statewide grizzly bear recovery program that identifies the need for connectivity between these two healthy populations as critical to the full recovery of the grizzly bear in Montana. A critical challenge in establishing this important connectivity is managing the potential for bear / human conflicts as grizzly bears begin to expand their populations outside of the large expanses of federal lands where they currently reside.
