Yellowstone's grizzlies are at risk, again, of losing endangered species protection.

Attacks on Yellowstone's grizzlies are intensifying.

First Wyoming lawmakers passed a law to end protection for these beloved bears. Now right-wing members of the Senate are pushing forward a congressional bill to do the same thing.

We'll fight to stop this bill from reaching Trump's desk, where he'd be sure to sign it in a heartbeat.

Please help us save grizzlies with a gift to our Predator Defense Fund.

Last fall we won in federal court, blocking a trophy hunt of Yellowstone's grizzlies.

But anti-wildlife forces never lost their lust for shooting down bears to hang body parts on their walls.

Wyoming started by trying to give itself the power to manage bears with federal protection, which could allow officials to rubber-stamp a hunt. We've taken the initial steps to block this ludicrous, illegal dodge around the Endangered Species Act.

Now Wyoming's senators have advanced legislation that would undo our legal victory for bears and strip grizzlies of their endangered status.

If this bill passes, it could mean trophy hunts for Yellowstone's prized bears for the first time in decades.

Wyoming knows science and the law are against it, so those who want to put grizzlies in the crosshairs are trying to change the rules.

Yellowstone's bears are some of the best loved in the world, and we're not about to let them disappear without a fight.

The enemies of bears and other wildlife won't stop — but neither will we.

Please give to our Predator Defense Fund to help us keep up the fight.

For the wild,
