Grizzly Wars: The Public Fight Over the Great Bearby David G. Knibb
Synopses & Reviews
Grizzly bears are a symbol of the wild and one of the most controversial animals in North America. David Knibb's book highlights the policy and political issues involved in managing and trying to save any species, especially one that is so contentious. The author looks at the grizzly bear recovery areas on both sides of the border from the North Cascades to the Northern Rockies. He examines the key issues in each region, including the current debate over the decision to remove Yellowstone's grizzly bears from the list of threatened species. In the process Knibb discusses the critical role of states, the need for links between recovery areas, whether they can be treated as distinct populations, and cooperation with Canada on bears that live along the border.
Long a magnificent symbol of the wild, grizzly bears are perhaps the most controversial species in North America. In Grizzly Wars, David Knibb explores the policy and political issues involved in managing and attempting to save any species, especially one that can pose a grave danger to human beings. .
