USFWS: Protect the Gunnison Sage-grouse!

    1. Petition by

      Rocky Mountain Wild

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.

PLEASE SIGN BY APRIL 2ND!

      I recently read an article in the Glenwood Springs Post Independent that noted how our local Garfield County Board of County Commissioners hired the American Stewards of Liberty. In turn, that Texas-based group is proposing to cut habitat, recommended by the Feds., by 93%. Seriously??

      I live here in Colorado and as a professional wildlife photographer it is important to me that these creatures along with all others be allowed to survive in their native habitats.

      The sage grouse is a magnificent bird in danger of losing more and more habitat due to drilling in the northern plains. The oil found in these prairies will only last a short time, while we could lose these beautiful creatures and associated species forever!

      We have visited the leks and seen these beautiful birds. They are declining because of habit loss. Something needs to be done.
