Though Yellowstone grizzlies delisted, griz of NW Central Montana years away

After 30 years, the grizzlies of the Greater Yellowstone are to be delisted, but there are 5 other populations of grizzlies in the lower 48 states. They are years away from delisting, even the largest, those of the Northern Continental Divide ecosystem (Glacier NP, Bob Marshall Wilderness and surrounding lands).

The populations are the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem

The Cabinet-Yaak

The Selkirk

The North Cascades

The Selway-Bitterroot (no grizzlies at present thanks to Idaho’s then-governor Dirk Kempthorne who stalled a proposed reintroduction. The area could sustain maybe 400 grizzly bears.)
