Biologists to capture grizzlies in YNP

BOZEMAN – As part of ongoing efforts to monitor the population of grizzly bears  in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, Yellowstone National Park and the USGS would like to inform the public that biologists with the National Park Service and Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) will be conducting scientific grizzly bear research operations

Wildlife, like this red fox are plentiful in Yellowstone even during the winter, and fortunate to be outfitted in such sturdy and warm coats. The lack of visitors during the winter offers the animals more freedom to utilize roads without fear of disturbance.

Not a walk in the park...

YELLOWSTONE—There are only two types of motorized transport allowed into Yellowstone National Park in the winter: guided snowmobile trips and snowcoaches. From the time the park closes in October to its spring reopening in April, the majority of those who venture into the park will do so with guides.
