Bears of Yellowstone, Yellowstone Electronic Field Trip presents 40 photos of grizzlies and black bears fishing, traveling with their cubs, and in various other activities and habitats.
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) is prime grizzly and black bear habitat. GYE encompasses two national parks, portions of six national forests, three national wildlife refuges, private and state lands, tribal lands, and Bureau of Land Management holdings. Its18 million acres (28,315 square miles) are approximately the same land area as the state of West Virginia! Many factors determine the long-term survival of bears in this vast area. They include proper food sources, open spaces that are free of human development, diversity of landscapes, and sound bear management practices.
