The Sage Grouse Initiative’s Strategic Watershed Action Team’s dedicated and enthusiastic range conservationists, wildlife biologists, and natural resource specialists put in place proactive conservation projects. These field staff also spread the shared vision of achieving wildlife conservation through sustainable ranching in the West.
Each quarter, SGI shares the latest accomplishments from our field partner positions, along with recent science and communications efforts. The Intermountain West Joint Venture takes the lead in coordinating SGI’s Strategic Watershed Action Team, along with a detailed tracking system that documents field staff progress on a quarterly basis. These reports ensure SGI is a lasting conservation partnership that produces tangible results to improve sage grouse habitat across 11 western states.
Below are some of the incredible highlights from the SGI field staff and our partners, as documented in the April-June 2015 quarterly report:
