With fewer than 10 grizzly bears left in the North Cascades, wildlife experts agree that this vulnerable population will die out without our help. Now is the time to act to preserve the natural legacy of wildlife inherited from generations before us – before that choice is gone forever.
Today, you can show your support for grizzly bear recovery by adding your name, business, or organization to our growing list of supporters. North Cascades grizzly bear restoration will depend upon the support of local communities and businesses, outdoor lovers, Native American nations, faith leaders, local champions and people like YOU.
As the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife begin assessing how to restore a healthy population of grizzly bears in the North Cascades, we hope to show support for the recovery of this vital native species through this independent website.
The following statement represents the Friends of the North Cascades Grizzly Bear supporters:
The Friends of the North Cascades Grizzly Bear support restoring a healthy population of grizzly bears to the North Cascades, their home for thousands of years. Wherever grizzlies thrive, so does wildness, clean water, and abundant native fish and wildlife.
The North Cascades Ecosystem, anchored by North Cascades National Park, contains one of the largest areas of wild and protected land in the lower 48 states. An extraordinary piece of our shared natural heritage, it’s important we pass it on, with all its native wildlife, for the benefit of future generations.
With only a few grizzly bears remaining today, however, an important part of this ecosystem and a culturally significant animal for regional indigenous people is in danger of disappearing forever. We support recovering the North Cascades grizzly bear population through best science and community involvement because it will help keep the Northwest a natural, beautiful and sustainable place in which to live, work and play.
