Ursus Arctos Horribilis
Environmental and Economic Benefits/Why they are endangered
Grizzly bears act to stabilize populations of animals and plants because they are omnivores. Since they are also protected in National Parks hey provide a steady source of revenue because of eco-toursim. This benefits not only national parks like Yellowstone, but the surrounding townships (hospitality business, restaurants, gas stations, etc.)
They have been added to the endangered species list because of excessive game hunting prior to the Endangered Species Act of 1974.
