Not Hunting the Grizzly

25 May

On this day in 1975 the Grizzly bear was classified as a “threatened” species.  Even though President Theodore Roosevelt wrote Hunting the Grisly, he actually worked with John Muir, the founder of the Sierra Club, to protect America’s wildlife and landscape.  I address this in my introduction to the reissue of this classic book, which is available in both paperback and ebook format.

Sadly, there are likely less than 1,000 Grizzlies in the United States today.  Find out more about Grizzly bears and other endangered animals at the Wildlife Conservation Society, where you can even send letters to Congress about protecting animals.
