BLM Sage Grouse Conservation Funding

posted in: Habitats | 0

President Obama’s 2016 budget request includes a total of $60 million to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for sage grouse conservation. Projects could include restoring rangelands, minimizing the threat of wildfire, controlling invasive plants, and improving riparian areas.

BLM is involved in a collaborative west-wide effort to update and strengthen management of sage grouse habitat. Key collaborators include western governors, state wildlife agencies, counties, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, and the U.S. Forest Service.
