Conservation Science Collaborative PROJECT BRIEF
Grizzlies in Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness are expanding east onto historic prairie range, following riverways out of the mountains and onto the ranchlands of central Montana. To keep people, bears and livestock safe, significant coexistence efforts are emerging up and down the Rocky Mountain Front.
The Conservation Science Collaborative is working in a priority area around the Upper Dearborn River and a portion of the Blackfeet Nation, preventing livestock conflicts by employing a range rider and guardian dogs while researching the patterns of grizzly and other predator movement on the Front.
