Overview
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 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.
for support of the Regional Integrated Sagebrush Campaign project  
This grant supports Audubon's work to protect habitat for sage grouse in the Northern Rockies from the impacts of energy development. The national organization has developed an innovative, scientific mapping strategy that has led to the state of Wyoming and the Bureau of Land Management adopting new plans to protect sage grouse habitat in the state and across the West. This grant would support efforts by Audubon to ensure the new strategy is applied to the remaining states that provide vital habitat for the sage grouse (CO, OR, UT, NV) and is implemented properly, obviating the need to list the bird as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.
