800 Typical Themes

801 - Seven basic statements

              1 - full protection
              2 - entire grizzly bear study area
              3 - corridors
              4 - logging road restoration + jobs
              5 - scientific committee variation
              6 - source bears decided by committee
              7 - source bears not from threatened populations

802 - Five basics of an Alternative 1-

             1 - removes ESA protection
             2 - removes females from Yellowstone & Greater Northern Continental Divide Area
             3 - CMC: government takeover (Babbitt can disband at any time)
             4 - limits recovery area
             5 - fails to provide corridors and protect habitat

803 - Covers statements in 801 and 802

804 - Habitat particularly logging road restoration, roadless area protection and protects corridors by road obliteration.

805 - ESA issues

              1 - downgrading to nonessential
              2 - no bears from Yellowstone or GNCD area
              3 - source bears decided by scientific committee
              4 - Nez/ bio/pro-wolf management

806 - ESA and habitat

              - threatened status protection
              - habitat/roadless protection
              - corridors/security

807 - ESA/Habitat/Security

              - road obliteration
              - economics
              - habitat security
              - no Northern Divide source bears

808 - 801 plus no bears from threatened & endangered locations in Yellowstone & GNCD

809 - 803 plus no bears from Yellowstone & GNCD
