Purpose/Mission: 
The grizzly bear is a keystone species; without them, the entire ecosystem suffers and biodiversity decreases. Their presence is so impactful even the landscape changes under their weight — rivers, vegetation, and forests are shaped by the grizzly bear. The natural world is not the only realm in which the grizzly bear wields influence. Since time immemorial the grizzly has acted as a teacher, a guide, and a mirror through which we can better understand ourselves and our relationship to nature. Protecting the grizzly bear maintains vast ecosystems, whilst also nurturing our connection to the lands we share.
