The real issue with Yellowstone Grizzlies is they are an isolated population, and thus some significant population is needed for bio-diversity.

It's probably not consistent with current laws; but trapping and exchanging some Yellowstone bears with other Grizzly populations would be the healthiest long term option.

Grizzly bear management should be done at the state level since they assume most of the cost.

A good example that Federal judges may make the rules about grizzlies.

I seem to recall that a couple decades ago there was an international nonprofit set up called something like "Yukon to Yellowstone", with the goal of establishing an unbroken (or nearly so) corridor through that whole territory for (in part) enabling migratory passage for front-range species, including the griz.  I guess maybe it didn't happen.  Anybody recall that?

Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y):
https://y2y.net/

It's quite active; a friend recently got a job with the org.
There is a lot to do: trying to connect islands of habitat, educational outreach, species and habitat protection, all the while working with land agencies and federal and local govs in Canada and USA.

Karsten Heuer, a Canadian wildlife biologist, first walked the whole of the corridor and wrote a book about it, Walking the Big Wild. It's pretty interesting.
