On Monday, a judge ruled to restore federal protections for grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The decision marks a victory for a coalition of conservation groups and the Native Americans that sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife for removing the Yellowstone grizzly from the Endangered Species Act’s threatened species list.

“The grizzly is a big part of why the Yellowstone region remains among our nation’s last great wild places,” Earthjustice attorney Tim Preso said in a statement. “This is a victory for the bears and for people from all walks of life who come to this region to see the grizzly in its natural place in the world.”

“We have a responsibility to speak for the bears, who cannot speak for themselves,” said Lawrence Killsback, president of the Northern Cheyenne Nation.
