Sage-Grouse, Photo: USFWS Pacific Southwest Region
This report details how the Bureau of Land Management and other states should avoid adopting Wyoming’s strategy for conserving sage-grouse, and includes recommendations for adopting science-based measures that are more likely to protect and recover the species.
In 2011, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced that it will consider listing the sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 2015. This pending deadline prompted federal agencies to initiate the National Greater Sage-Grouse Planning Strategy, an effort to update land-use plans with new measures to conserve sage-grouse and potentially preclude the need to list the species.
