Summary

Bear Management Units (BMUs) are management areas within the Grizzly Bear Recovery Zone (GBRZ) that were delineated by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) to assist in managing habitat and monitoring population trends of the Yellowstone grizzly bear population. BMU areas approximate the size of the lifetime range of an average adult female and reflect areas of biological relevance to grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). The GBRZ was divided into 18 distinct BMUs to facilitate monitoring and ensure that adequate habitat and numbers of grizzly bears are well distributed throughout the GYE recovery zone.

Purpose

Delineated in 1984 by the IGBST, BMUs serve as management units within the Yellowstone GBRZ to help ensure that the habitat and numbers of grizzly bears are well distributed throughout the recovery zone. Areas with concentrated use by grizzly bears during one or more active seasons determined the core for most BMUs.
