Sage grouse are dependent on sage brush habitat for nesting and food sources and much of this sage brush habitat overlaps with farmland in the western U.S. – 31 percent of sage grouse range is privately owned.
It’s no surprise that the Farm Bill has big impacts on wildlife, endangered and common species alike. Eighty percent of threatened and endangered species are found on private landsi, most of which is managed by America’s farmers, ranchers and forest landowners.
