CCCP partners to continue surveys for grizzly bears in 2012

With support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), researchers from the U.S. Forest Service, Western Transportation Institute, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and North Cascades National Park will conduct a third summer of surveys for grizzly bears in Washington’s North Cascades Ecosystem in 2012. Several teams of biologists will be working throughout the North Cascades to try to detect grizzly bears in the region with noninvasive hair-snagging devices and remote cameras. Results will help inform the USFWS’s recovery planning process for grizzlies, which were decimated throughout their range in the Lower 48 between the mid-1800s and the early 1900s. Today, a handful of grizzlies may inhabit remote areas of the North Cascades. Stay tuned to this website for updates.
