Overview
Sage-grouse populations have been declining throughout their range due to habitat loss associated with oil and gas development, exurban development, and competition from invasive species. This renewal grant would support National Audubon’s efforts to seek habitat protections needed by sage-grouse to survive across seven states in the West. Audubon will employ scientific analysis of the habitat needs of sage-grouse and pursue outreach to decision makers, the public, industry, and the ranching community in support of sage-grouse conservation.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Regional Integrated Sagebrush Campaign  
The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conservation. Located in the U.S. and incorporated in 1905, Audubon is one of the oldest such organizations in the world and uses science, education, and grassroots advocacy to advance its conservation mission. This renewal grant supports ongoing research, public education, and outreach on behalf of the sagebrush ecosystem in the American West.
for support of the Regional Integrated Sagebrush Campaign project  
Federal and state agencies reached an historic agreement in 2015 to protect declining sage grouse populations in the West without having to resort to the species’ protection under the Endangered Species Act. This grant will support the Society’s work to ensure the sage grouse agreement is properly implemented. Audubon will use the grant to produce scientific analyses of how well sage grouse plans are being implemented, coordinate mitigation strategies with federal and state agencies, and engage a broad array of local stakeholders in successful implementation of sage grouse plans.
