After a long court battle by the Center and allies, a judge returned federal protections to Yellowstone grizzly bears last year, just in time to save them from Wyoming's trophy hunt.

And this month the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officially "relisted" these iconic predators under the Endangered Species Act.

"All grizzlies need Endangered Species Act protections until they're truly recovered," said the Center's Andrea Santarsiere. "We'll keep fighting for these bears until that day."
