Overview
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 lives in the American West and has become synonymous with the health 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.

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.
