A struggling bird needs your help
Half of their habitat has already been lost forever.
Yet those responsible for conserving this extraordinary bird may be about to fail them.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing to finalize multiple draft conservation plans for the sage-grouse. As written, the plans will not protect the species and its fragile sagebrush habitat.
But there’s still hope – tell President Obama and his administration to step in and ensure that adequate conservation plans are adopted for the sage-grouse.
Once found in great numbers, the bird’s population has plummeted over the last century due to habitat loss and degradation from energy development, under-regulated grazing, irresponsible off-road vehicle use, invasive species and wildfire.
But you can help them – your voice is crucial to ensuring responsible protections for the sage-grouse and its habitat.
The strongest possible measures need to be taken to protect sage-grouse and their remaining habitat. It will take President Obama and his administration working together to ensure that the BLM’s final plans provide adequate, sustainable protections for sage-grouse. So please, urge President Obama to protect remaining healthy sagebrush habitat across our public lands, for the sage-grouse and the many other species that make their home on this remarkable landscape.
We have the opportunity to protect the iconic greater sage-grouse and its sagebrush habitat – please, don’t let it slip away.
