Title: Journal of Environmental Law & Litigation : Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 285-366 : Grizzly Bears, Gray Wolves, and Federalism, Oh My! The Role of the Endangered Species Act in De Facto Ecosystem-Based Management in the Greater Glacier Region of Northwest Montana
Author: Guercio, Lara D.; Duane, Timothy P.
Abstract: In this Article, we explore how (1) differences in the role of the ESA for the management of grizzly bear and gray wolf populations, and (2) changes in the legal regime associated with delisting of the gray wolf, both affect species conservation and transjurisdictional, ecosystem-based management efforts in the complex institutional landscape of the GGR of northwest Montana. We believe the ESA has played the central role in efforts to implement ecosystem-based management over the past two decades in a wide range of settings, so these differences and likely changes in the legal regime are likely to affect the success of such efforts. The experience of grizzly and wolf management in the GGR is therefore relevant for the conservation of wide-ranging predators and ecosystem-based management in other locations across the United States and within the West.
