Is the great bear really gone?  It was supposed to be extinct in 1952 when the last bear was poisoned by a government trapper, but 27 years later, in 1979, another "last" Grizzly was killed in the state. Many reported sightings of Grizzly bears in Colorado are obviously misidentified Black bears, which can greatly range in fur color. But year after year, high in some lonely pass or at the edge of an alpine meadow, reports come in by people who know they saw something different. Sightings of large brown or blond bears with massive shoulder humps, dished faces and long claws persist yearly. In the fall of 2006, a very credible sighting report came in from two hunters who have had experience with Grizzlies. As the Grizzly is officially considered extirpated from Colorado, any potential surviving bears are not receiving the study, legislation and, most importantly, the protection they deserve. The Colorado Grizzly Coalition aims to change that. If we can find solid evidence of this great and noble animal in Colorado, then State and Federal agencies will be obligated to act.

What we do:

We train and lead teams of passionate professionals and volunteers on back country expeditions to look for bear sign and the bears themselves. This is accomplished by recognizing bear habitat and signs of bear activity and then deploying camera traps to key locations. In addition to the camera traps, which are often left in the field for weeks at a time, every team also has portable video cameras and still cameras in case they should encounter bears, as well as to document the search process for public education.


In addition to searching for Grizzly in Colorado we also realize that we have the opportunity to locate other rare animals, most notably the Endangered Canada Lynx, (currently being reintroduced to the state), the Gray Wolf,which although previously extinct in the state, has in recent years been documented wandering into Colorado from Wyoming, and perhaps rarest and most secretive of all the Wolverine. UPDATE: When our last trip to the San Juans in October is complete we will shift our searches to Wolves and Wolverine! And of course when the bears wake up again in march we will be out there again. Looking for the great bear!

 Gear Wish List:
Camera Traps (often known as "game cams"). We need dozens of these, the more we have the more area we can cover thoroughly.

Digital Video Cameras and Still Cameras.

GPS

2 way backcountry radios

light camping gear

Old Deer or Elk meat

Fairly new, light weight laptop for image storage from camera traps while in the field.

Misc. Batteries, Headlamps, USB cables, rope, bear spray, first aid equipment etc
 

Donate your time, gear or money
And help us out by Reporting any interesting sightings of Grizz you may have had in New Mexico/Colorado/Utah or Wyoming ( Colorado border areas). Any sightings from the last 10 years are especially useful in helping to pinpoint search locations.
