Grizzly Bear Habitat = Vital Ground
America’s magnificent grizzly bear is a national treasure. As Vital Ground co-founder Lynne Seus has observed, “Where the grizzly can walk, the earth is healthy and whole.” But habitat loss threatens bears and all wildlife that co-resides with them. Protecting grizzly bear habitat requires effective habitat science. The Vital Ground Foundation conserves crucial inter-habitat linkage areas. These safe wildlife corridors are what bears depend on as they move to find each other and reproduce. Vital Ground works, for example, to link fragile populations in the Cabinet, Purcell and Selkirk mountains. Critical habitat conservation helps assure grizzly bear survival. Without it, U.S. grizzly bears face extinction in the lower 48 states. Conserving vital habitat protects nature’s irreplaceable grizzly bears. Vital Ground is all about habitat conservation and grizzly bear survival.
