Alberta Grizzlies

Are they a threat or threatened?

Many people think of bears as a big threat to humans, when really it's the other way round. An analysis done between 1971 and 1996 in the central rockies showed that 98% of known grizzly deaths were human caused. The Grizzly Bears population used to be in the thousands but now is estimated to be 691.

What can you do?

At this point the people with the most power to save the Grizzlies are the heads of companies and government people. The most important thing any of us can do is spread the word, let people know this is a problem; write a letter to the government, get them to recognize this as an issue. You can also donate to organizations who work towards saving Grizzly Bears and their habitat.
