“Hope” is the thing with feathers – Emily Dickinson
If hope is the thing with feathers then I want to heap as much hope as I can find into the future of Greater Sage-Grouse. I’d like to believe that Sage Grouse will still exist in 2050 and steps are being taken to protect these large upland game birds but will it be enough?
Ranchers have begun to take steps that not only help grouse but studies have shown that the cattle benefit from their conservation measures too. Seems like it would make sense if more ranchers took up the cause.
