Bay Nature Magazine featured an excellent story by Eric Simons on the Bi-State sage grouse, its habitat, and how it is reshaping conservation in the U.S. SGI is proud to be involved in the unprecedented partnership working to conserve the distinct population of sage grouse in California and Nevada.
On the California-Nevada state line, a geographically distinct population of sage grouse once faced a precarious future. Today, that’s changed. The decision by the USFWS that the Bi-State sage grouse no longer needs protection under the Endangered Species Act proves that diverse partners committed to a shared vision works to achieve wildlife conservation.
Seeing sage grouse inspires the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust —a Sage Grouse Initiative partner. CCALT has protected more than 45,000 acres of sage grouse habitat on working ranches.
