Description

In this radio interview, Dr. John J. Craighead discusses his work with grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park. Craighead talks about a research grant he and his team received that would allow them to publish the results of over a decade of field work on the grizzly population of Yellowstone. He describes some of the results of this research, including the discovery that grizzly bears have a very low birth rate. He also discusses research grants from NASA and National Geographic that would allow him and his team to access satellite imaging data to better manage nation-wide populations of grizzly bears. He stresses the need to conserve grizzly bear habitat in order to manage and preserve bear populations.
