Western Governors’ Association Releases Major Sage Grouse Conservation Report
April 2, 2015
Sage grouse conservation is producing historic results at local, state, regional and federal levels, with more commitments ahead. That’s the news from the Western Governors’ Association in its March 2015 report: Sage-Grouse Inventory 2014 Conservation Initiatives. The 32-page document with a 101-page appendix compiles work at both policy and implementation levels on behalf of sage grouse in 11 western states, from 2010 to 2015.
The Sage Grouse initiative highly recommends the new report and its appendix as a key resource.
The Sage Grouse Initiative is a partnership-based, science-driven effort that uses voluntary incentives to proactively conserve America’s western rangelands, wildlife, and rural way of life. This initiative is part of Working Lands For Wildlife, which is led by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
