Washington Spring Bear Hunt Shot Down By Commission Again!

Last year (2022), The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Commissioners voted 5-4 to end the spring bear hunt in Washington. The WDFW received over 26,000 comments regarding reinstating the state's spring bear hunt. This year (2023), bear hunters made several attempts to reinstate the bear hunt. On September 8th, The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission rejected petitions to reintroduce a spring black bear hunting season for the upcoming year (2024).

Save the Yellowstone Grizzlies!
Despite the many threats grizzly bears face, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the state governments of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming are pushing to delist grizzly bears. Removing grizzly bear protections will allow the establishment of a trophy hunting season.

Please complete the calls to action listed below.
Contact Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and politely express your OPPOSITION to the delisting of Yellowstone Grizzly Bears.

Contact your House Representatives (link below) to OPPOSE Bills;
HR 1245 - which removes Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) grizzly bears, including the grizzlies of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, from protection under the ESA.

HR 1419 -  remove ESA protection for the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem (NCDE) population of grizzly bears, including bears of Glacier National Park. NCDE grizzlies were subject to the same eradication programs in the early 19th century as GYE grizzlies and were subject to an active hunting program into the 1990s, even while listed.

Stop New Jersey Bear Hunt!

On Wednesday, September 6, 2022, The New Jersey Fish and Game Council approved a bear management plan that allows bear hunting until at least 2028. This decision passed even though bear hunting does NOT reduce bear-human conflicts; state data shows a 32% drop in all bear activity compared to last year (2022), overwhelming public opposition, and proven non-lethal methods that could have been implemented.

Please complete the calls to action listed below.
Contact Governor Phil Murphy and tell him to stop the New Jersey Bear Hunt.
