The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) was formed in 1983 to help ensure recovery of viable grizzly bear populations and their habitat in the lower 48 states through interagency coordination of policy, planning, management, and research. The IGBC has proven to be a successful model for agencies by working cooperatively together over the last 33 years and coordinating recovery efforts over multiple jurisdictions.

Greater Yellowstone Coalition
The Greater Yellowstone Coalition was founded in 1983 on a simple premise: an ecosystem will remain healthy and wild only if it is kept whole. For more than 35 years, GYC has been a pioneer in defining and promoting the concept of ecosystem management. Their offices, strategically placed in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho, allow them to engage in a wide variety of efforts locally, regionally, and nationally to ensure Greater Yellowstone’s lands, waters, wildlife are protected now and well into the future.
Bear Spray: Yellowstone National Park
Bear spray is a non-lethal bear deterrent designed to stop aggressive behavior in bears. Its use can reduce human injuries caused by bears and the number of bears killed by people in self-defense. Bear spray uses a fine cloud of Capsicum derivatives to temporarily reduce a bear’s ability to breath, see, and smell, giving you time to leave the area.
Yellowstone is a national treasure that needs the ideas, energy, and contributions from many different people to successfully enhance and preserve it for the future. With the launch of Yellowstone Forever we are building a new model of partnership with the National Park Service, one that will engage more visitors and future stewards than ever before. The opportunities that Yellowstone Forever provides—to experience, connect, and contribute—are the first steps in a lifelong journey for people who want to preserve the park for generations to come.
Living With Wildlife Foundation
As the human population increases and expands further into wild areas, numbers of human-wildlife encounters also increase. As a result Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), other state and federal wildlife management agencies, and non-profit groups associated with wildlife issues receive increasing numbers of requests for information on sources of bear-resistant products and techniques for deterring predators. The Living With Predators Resource Guides were developed in cooperation with FWP’s Living with Predators Project to help wildlife agency personnel respond to requests for this information.
The first edition of the guides was published in 2003 and was reviewed by a number of bear experts in the US and Canada. Every effort has been made to provide the most accurate and up-to date information possible, but this area of commerce has been growing rapidly. The guides will be updated periodically to reflect new products, and to update prices, vendor contact information, results of testing for bear resistance, and other important information.
Wildlife Management Institute
The Wildlife Management Institute was established in 1911 by sportsmen/businessmen gravely concerned about the dramatic declines of many wildlife populations. Its founders saw a need for a small, independent and aggressive cadre of people dedicated to restoring and ensuring the well-being of wild populations and their habitats.
The Vital Ground Foundation is the premier private-sector organization ensuring the recovery and long-term survival of grizzly bears ― together with the many native species that share their range ― through the protection and restoration of natural areas and corridors where grizzly bears and other wildlife can move freely and safely. Vital Ground also helps reduce conflicts between bears and humans by encouraging and supporting “bear aware” communities within our priority project areas.
National Park Foundation
The National Park Foundation, the official charitable partner of the National Park Service, enriches America’s national parks and programs through the support of private citizens, park lovers, stewards of nature, history enthusiasts, and wilderness adventurers. Chartered by Congress in 1967, the Foundation grew out of a legacy of park protection that began over a century ago, when ordinary citizens took action to establish and protect our national parks.
Today, the National Park Foundation carries on the tradition of early park advocates, big thinkers, doers and dreamers—from John Muir and Ansel Adams to President Theodore Roosevelt.
