Hello all! So far this year, my project has archived 1000+ images of grizzlies from all over Yellowstone National Park! All of these images are crucial in the positively identifying certain bears (mainly females with cubs). The last bear this year was observed on December 3rd from some distance, and at this time, we can speculate and say that grizzlies in Yellowstone have all entered hibernation. That being said, the work is just beginning.
Data analysis and the construction of the publication has begun this week and will continue over the next several months. So far my study identified 19 females with cubs in the year 2016 (10 females w/ COY, 6 females w/ yearlings, and 3 females w/ 2 year-olds).
Anyone who has images, and who would like to contribute to the publication some sort of material, please contact me via email Brasingttj12@uww.edu.
Your contributions, assistance, and following of this project are critically important in the long term management and conservation of grizzlies in the Yellowstone ecosystem and national park!
