Tell Jackson: Protect bears!

Rules that will keep bears alive in and around Jackson (WY) are being rewritten for the first time since 1994. Here's your chance to weigh in!

Please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey. Your answers -- particularly if you live in Teton County -- will make a difference with county officials mulling more bear-friendly living in the Jackson area.

This is your chance to tell Jackson to support its #1 community priority, and save bears who are too often getting used to garbage, dog food, and berry bushes -- and getting into trouble because of it. We're advocating for simple fixes, like county-wide bear-resistant trash cans, and other common-sense changes people can make to co-exist with the wildlife that makes Teton County a special place to live. You can read more about this issue here.

So join us in sending your thoughts to Teton County as they rewrite rules that could keep bears alive for the next 25 years. And thank you for supporting our work to keep bears alive in Greater Yellowstone.
