Jeremy Bruskotter, associate professor in The Ohio State University’s School of Environment and Natural Resources is one of seven scientific experts featured in a new film that raises concerns about removing federal endangered species protections for Yellowstone’s iconic Grizzly Bears.  Delisting, or discontinuing federal protection for grizzly bears would expose the threatened population to trophy hunting and erode recovery measures. 

In the film, the scientists describe the current threats facing Greater Yellowstone grizzly bears, make recommendations on recovery efforts and describe public  support for these efforts.

The film, Keep Grizzlies Protected is by filmmakers Anthony Birkholz and Marni Walsh and produced by Louisa Wilcox.
