Grasping Grizzlies

The Decrease In Grizzly Bear Population

Grizzly intro

For years the grizzly bear has been a majestic and powerful symbol of the wilderness. It is no wonder, these massive bears are among the largest land carnivores in the world. Since the 1970s these bears have been under intense study following a massive population crash in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Where are the Grizzlies?

Grizzly bears typically live in mountain ranges where rich forests and plenty of streams are found. They will also make use of scattered meadows and grasslands within the mountains, providing a diverse environment for the grizzly to live in. Grizzly bears presently occupy a range that spans from the pacific coast of Alaska to Hudson’s Bay in the North, as well as most of British Columbia and some of Alberta, Canada. The home range of grizzly bears in the eastern slopes of the Central Rockies Ecosystem is quite large, from about 500 sq. km for females to 1000 sq. km for males. Any roads or railways act like fences limiting the Grizzlies ability to move between food sources. It is estimated that there are more than 30,000 grizzly bears in Alaska as well as 25,000 or more in Western Canada.
