Yellowstone grizzly bear cubs

Victory: A Safe Future for Yellowstone Grizzlies 🐻

We're still buzzing with excitement over Monday's historic court ruling that restored Endangered Species Act protection to Yellowstone grizzlies.

The federal judge's decision to overturn a 2017 Trump administration order that stripped protection from these threatened bears is a massive victory. The Center for Biological Diversity, with our environmental and tribal allies, has been fighting that order since it was issued. Monday's decision not only returns protection but also halts plans in Wyoming and Idaho to hunt more than 20 bears.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this fight. We couldn't have done it without you.

But we fully expect the Trump administration to appeal this decision — and your gift to our Predator Defense Fund will help us defend this lifesaving victory.

A Crucial Win for Pacific Fishers

Thanks to another court victory won by the Center and allies, Pacific fishers now have a better shot at Endangered Species Act protection.

Relatives of minks and otters, Pacific fishers once lived in forests from British Columbia to Southern California. But intense logging and trapping drove their numbers way down, and now only two naturally occurring populations are left in California and Oregon.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed federal protection for the fishers in 2014, but in 2016 arbitrarily withdrew that proposal. So we challenged the decision, and a judge just ruled the agency must reconsider by March 2019. Hopefully that means these amazing, forest-dwelling creatures will finally get the protections they so badly need.
