Save the Louisiana Black Bear

The U.S. Fish and Widlilfe Service, under pressure by the State of Louisiana, is trying to remove our Louisiana black bear from the federal Endangered Species list, despite not meeting the recovery goals that were established when the bear was listed as threatened in 1992. 
The Black Bear Conservation Coalition (BBCC), Atchafalaya Basinkeeper (ABK), Delta Chapter Sierra Club, Gulf Restoration Network, and other groups are opposing the delisting.  Click Here to see ABK’s comments.
