Grizzly bears at Woodland Park Zoo


In the wild, grizzly bears inhabit Alaska, western Canada, and parts of the northwestern United States. In the US, grizzly bears are a protected species under the Endangered Species Act.  They are threatened by habitat loss due to logging, development, and mining.  Only about 1200 – 1400 grizzly bears live in five separate populations in the continental US, including areas in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Washington.  To learn more about grizzly bears, see Animal Fact Guide’s article: Grizzly Bear.
