USFWS: Protect the Gunnison Sage-grouse!


Gunnison sage-grouse are one of the most imperiled species in the United States. Fewer than 5,000 of these birds remain, occurring in less than 10 percent of their historic range. Fortunately, Gunnison sage-grouse may soon receive the protection they need to get on the road to recovery.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently proposed to grant this species the protection it needs, but real estate developers and other interests don’t want the bird to be protected under the Endangered Species Act, and are opposing the proposal. Please take action and tell the USFWS that you support safeguarding Gunnison sage-grouse before it's too late.
