Summary

Flight Observation Units, also referred to as Bear Observation Areas (BOAs), were delineated by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) to facilitate systematic aerial monitoring of the grizzly bear population within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Flight units were last updated in 2014 to depict 54 distinct observation areas spanning the spatial extent of the Demographic Monitoring Area established for the Yellowstone grizzly bear population.

Purpose

Flight Observation Units (FOUs) were delineated by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) to facilitate the systematic monitoring of grizzly bears (population size and trend, distribution, and mortality levels) within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. When possible, flight unit boundaries were designed to follow easily identifiable ground features such as Interstate, Federal, and State highways; streams and rivers; and easily recognizable natural topographic features.
