Mission Statement

Save the Yellowstone Grizzly fights for the safety and welfare of all grizzlies south of Canada. Our goal is to establish a large-scale grizzly bear ecosystem recovery zone with appropriate linkages, ensuring the long-term viability of bears in face of the imminent effects of climate change.


STYG has undertaken three interrelated projects to make our world safer for bears and other wildlife:

1) Films: We has produced two films, which we use in our roadshow and also show in broader venues.

a. "The Beast of Our Time: Climate Change & Grizzly Bears" explores the relationship between grizzlies and climate change. Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges and scored by Bill Payne of Little Feat.

b. "The Orphans of Tom Miner Basin" - Brad Orsted narrates his own three-year journey with these sister grizzlies, perhaps the most viewed of all grizzlies north of Yellowstone park. These twins were executed in traps by Montana game agents in the fall of 2018, with no consideration of relocation or second chances. The orphans were the best ambassadors for good human-bear relationships Paradise Valley has ever seen.

2) The roadshow: A traveling program of advocacy and education rolled up in entertainment.

3) The underpass project: We have chosen a route to get grizzlies and other wildlife across I-90, linking Yellowstone’s animals with those of the Glacier National Park ecosystem. This is the ultimate expression of corridor work and involves biological surveys and contacts with residents to minimize human-grizzly conflicts.
