Between the lines: What America’s grizzly bear recovery expert said-and did not say- about Alberta’s (ho-hum) attempts to recover the Great Bear

July 31, 2015

Dr. Chris Servheen knows a thing or two about grizzly bear recovery. Or, maybe, 34 things (one for each year he has been working to recover the great bear in the US Northern Rockies). Servheen currently is the coordinator of the grizzly bear recovery strategy for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. At the centre of Servheen’s three-decade experience is a clear conclusion. Managing humans is a lot more difficult than managing grizzly bears. And “managing” humans is what grizzly bear recovery is all about.  By Jim Pissot

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
