Victory! Bureau of Land Management protects Sage-grouse Habitat

On Tuesday, our voices were heard – the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) finalized land use plans to protect tens of millions of acres for the greater sage-grouse and more than 350 other species of wildlife! Hundreds of thousands of public land advocates like you – including over 150,000 Change.org activists – urged the administration to protect the West’s iconic sagebrush lands in order to save a dwindling sage-grouse population and an imperiled landscape. This week’s announcement marked the culmination of the largest land conservation effort in BLM’s history. Thanks to you and the support of countless others, we were able to achieve a historic conservation victory! The recently released BLM plans will provide critical protections for greater sage-grouse habitat and the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem as a whole, as well as for world-class hunting, fishing, backpacking, and birding—important economic drivers for local communities. The effort to protect the greater sage-grouse and the sagebrush landscape it calls home was built on years of collaboration and dialogue among federal and state agencies, local communities, nonprofit partners, and activists like you. BLM’s final plans incorporate the best available science and responsibly balance energy development, recreation, grazing, and other activities on public lands in order to protect the Western way of life. Thank you for adding your support for safeguarding the greater sage-grouse and our sagebrush public lands.
