February Social Distancing Hour
February 23, 2021
|This month, Advocates for the West is teaming up with Golden Eagle Audubon Society, our client and partner in several efforts to protect sage-grouse, to bring you a special presentation. |
Can Sage-Grouse Save the West?
The greater sage-grouse once dominated the American West, but their populations have plummeted in modern times due to overgrazing, oil and gas development, roads and power lines, and other human disturbance. As an “umbrella” species, the health of the bird’s population is also an indicator of the perilous state of sagebrush ecosystems and the over 350 other native species they support.
This presentation by Staff Attorney Sarah Stellberg will discuss the ongoing legal and policy battles to save the sage-grouse – one of the largest conservation efforts in U.S. history – and its implications for public lands management across the West.
