Over the past month, a series of reports have documented challenges in the efforts to conserve sagebrush and sage grouse, as well as offered specific recommendations to address these challenges. In mid-March, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)—in cooperation with the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)—released a strategy for conserving sagebrush ecosystems in the West. Later in March, a USGS report was released that outlined an estimated 80% range-wide decline of greater sage-grouse since 1965 and a nearly 40% decline since 2002. Finally, in early April the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) released new frameworks for conservation of working rangelands to help address large-scale threats in sagebrush and grassland ecosystems in the West.
