VIDEO: Conservation Efforts Save Bi-state Sage Grouse from Endangered Species Act Listing


The Nevada-California population of sage grouse received good news today. Conservation efforts by landowners, government agencies and the Sage Grouse Initiative​, funded by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, have saved this particular population of the grouse — the bi-state sage grouse population — from being listed under the Endangered Species Act.

Watch the videos below for more additional details.

The greater sage-grouse population is still under consideration for listing by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. A decision is expected later this year.
