The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. In pursuit of that mission, the USFWS is committed to working closely with conservation partners to secure the viability of the greater sage grouse and to maintain healthy sagebrush ecosystems throughout the West. Through its Partners for Fish and Wildlife program, the USFWS has helped fund 13 of the 23 SGI SWAT positions, and is working directly with interested private landowners to deliver on-the-ground sagebrush steppe habitat restoration projects. In addition, the USFWS is working with the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, and State wildlife agencies to develop adequate conservation plans and regulatory mechanisms that will help ensure a future where the greater sage-grouse and its habitat can thrive.
