    General Support/Program
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.

Grants to this Grantee
for protecting the sagebrush ecosystem  
The nonprofit National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas, using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. This grant supports ongoing education of the public and policymakers about sagebrush and the greater sage-grouse, a bird that is recognized as an indicator species of the ecological integrity of the sagebrush ecosystem. Consistent with the Western Conservation grantmaking strategy’s attention to the biodiversity of the North American West, conserving the sagebrush ecosystem, which spans 14 states, benefits more than 350 species of plants and animals. (Substrategy: Advance Conservation Protections)
for general operating support  
This proposed general support grant to the National Audubon Society is in recognition of the outstanding work Susan Bell performed while vice president of the Hewlett Foundation. With a passionate interest in bird conservation, Susan is now a highly effective Audubon board member. This grant would support its advocacy efforts on behalf of bird conservation.
for support of the Regional Integrated Sagebrush Campaign project  
Sage grouse populations have been declining across the intermountain West due to new energy development and poor livestock grazing practices. This grant would support the Society’s work to protect sage grouse habitat in a 60 million-acre area encompassing parts of six western states.
