Grizzly bears are referred to as an umbrella or keystone species. If we can protect land where these bears can survive and even flourish, then we are also safeguarding many other species found in the ecosystem. Globally grizzlies have lost 50 percent of the original range, that number is not much different in North America. That is why it's so important to protect these two four (today six) month old grizzly bear cubs. That in turn protects so many of their wild friends and out connection to nature.
