World Factbook Entry

The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE), at 28,000 square miles, is one of the largest intact temperate-zone ecosystems on Earth today, encompassing Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. It is one of the world's foremost natural laboratories in landscape ecology and geology and is a world-renowned recreational site.

Greater Yellowstone’s natural diversity is essentially intact, retaining or restoring its full historic complement of wildlife species—unique in the wildlands of the contiguous 48 states. Habitats range from high alpine areas to sagebrush, hydrothermal, forests, meadows, and other habitat types. All of these are connected, including linkages provided by streams and rivers that course through changing elevations.

Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem Regional Message Board

Welcome to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, where bison are more important than beef, where we try to respect our superintendents, and we understand the science behind the biology, geology, and climate. We don't close our borders, nor detain children from entering and enjoying our region. We just ask that you leave the elk alone, don't go off the boardwalks, don't shoot the bison (who do not overgraze the Lamar, that's what cows do) or the bears. The only temporary closures are due to things like snow-clogged mountain passes, bison parades, and shifts in thermal features--for your safety.

Normally, we don't keep people out of Yellowstone. But Raymond Reinke, age 55, from Pendleton, Oregon is a Grade A @$$/-/@+ who taunts our bison, drives drunk & reckless, and gets into fights constantly with our guests. By the power vested in me, we sentence him to stand in front of a herd of bison bulls in a cow costume. Which is also filled with fire ants.

I've heard of ears getting cleaned, but to have Ear Spring erupt and spew out trash thrown in from several decades ago...that's amazing! They used to do it a lot. Morning Glory got clogged that way. But let's not see that happen again...the trash, that is.

In response to the killing of our beloved and famous park wolves, we officially declare it open season on trophy hunters. Yes, we support the right to arm bears, too.

A reminder, folks, the bison can and will charge you. And they are faster than you are.

When my family and I were in Medora, we had to wait a whole hour just so a couple bison could cross the road.

Welcome back, Nuovoiork. My apologies for my lack of correspondence. It's been a challenging time these last few years.

Yep. Nothing like a couple of bison to make you remember to slow down, be aware of your surroundings, and be grateful for life.

I personally don't mind if they are slow; it's when they are fast that you gotta watch out. I was in Yellowstone at Mud Volcano when the males came up while the females and calves stayed down in the Hayden Valley. Being boys, they'd challenge each other and sometimes get into fights. My wife and I came down one boardwalk, and there was this bull coming up. It stopped and snorted. Now, with boiling mud around us, weren't anywhere else to go. So we froze. I turned my head to took a look behind me, and there in my peripheral was another bull, lying in the mud. I realized that we puny humans were directly in between, so I carefully coaxed my wife and a couple of other folks along so they could do their bison thing. Really gets the adrenaline going, I tell you what. Powerful experience.

I like and respect animals. My family includes pets.
How about you? Do you consider yourself an animal person?

I eat them sometimes. But not often. I prefer the tame wilderness of a city's park.
