Whether you'll ultimately agree with the plan or not, I don't know, but if you want to be informed on the issue, you have a lot of choices.
Speaking of being informed, here's a bit of Washington State law that will prevent successful implementation of the reintroduction: RCW 77.12.035 “Grizzly bears shall not be transplanted or introduced into the state. Only grizzly bears that are native to Washington state may be utilized by the department for management programs.” This means by law WDFW can NOT be involved in any way with reintroduction. They have ZERO power or duty to deal with a transplanted bear. Also, the reintroduction "plan" as documented in the “Impact Statement” relies heavily on the “1986 Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee Plan for Determining Grizzly Bear Nuisance Status and for Controlling Nuisance Grizzly Bears for the North Cascades Ecosystem” (“IGBC Plan”, Appendix D), which in turn relies heavily on “State fish and Wildlife” agency support. But in every case cited, the impact statement fails to address how the IGBC Plan will work without WDFW support. The IGBC Plan also states clearly that all state laws are to be followed. What is incredibly stupid is the impact statement acknowledges RCW 77.12.035, but then ignores it by referring to the IGBC Plan. RCW permits WDFW to “fully participate in all discussions and negotiations”, but they really dropped the ball when reviewing the Impact Statement because they failed to point out the impact of their inability to lawfully support any reintroduction. But just like any government program, there is a very high likelihood of failure.
The concerns/comments about RCW 77.12.035 were answered in Appendix E, comment 142, of the EIS.
Quote:
The NPS and FWS would restore grizzly bears only on federal lands with a priority for NPS lands and would not rely on WDFW in that effort. Washington State law does not preclude the NPS and FWS from reintroducing grizzly bear as proposed. The NPS and FWS defer to the state to interpret RCW 77.12.035 as it applies to state agencies. The NPS and FWS consulted with the WDFW in the development of the EIS and associated proposed 10(j) rule, conferred with the WDFW as a cooperating agency in the NEPA planning process, would confer with WDFW on management of grizzly bears, should an action alternative be selected.

I will be surprised if this project is more successful than the mountain goat relocation project.

Yes, and without humans reintroducing them. Wolves birth litters of 4-6 pups and live in packs that help protect the young. Griz birth a pair of cubs , live solitary and male griz murder cubs (potentially their own)
