Grizzly Bears

In response to rising conflicts between grizzly bears and people, Defenders started a grizzly bear electric fence incentive program in 2010. Through this program, we’re helping residents in grizzly bear country protect items like garbage, chicken coops, beehives or fruit trees that might otherwise “lure” bears into trouble.

Wildlife is once again at a crossroads, and the need to speed up recovery efforts could not be more urgent.
